Pipe benders, I need some help

I am building a rail system for my 3 gun wagon and need some assistance in placing the marks to make my bends.

I am using 1" EMT. Here is a drawing of what it is I want to accomplish. A 45 degree angle should be the outcome.

To avoid bending passed 90 degrees I would assume that a kick would be needed at one of the ends?

Thanks for the help, it is appreciated.

BT Pro says put your first mark about a foot past the pic of the gf/so you forgot to include.

Mark a scrap piece anywhere and stick it in the bender. Mark the pipe at the beginning of the die. Bend 90* and measure back. You now have a reference. Experience or more scrap pieces to hold up will give you the start of each bend.
It's going to be near impossible to give you the answer you seek without gf pics. Well that and knowing the true centerline radius and calculated springboard at 90*

There should be a star on your bender and also the measurement of the material it takes up. It should be stamped somewhere on the bender. IF you are using a manual bender. I only have 1/2" and 3/4" here so I can't look but I'm sure google has it somewheres. I'm lazy and on my phone.

Start of bend depends on the radius of the die and where the bend actually starts in that die. Bends usually start in the die a bit in side from the edge of the die. Bend some scraps and make a mark for start of bend.

Well, 1/2" conduit is $2.50 a foot so I'd try it once and adjust.

1/2" is easy. I am hand bending 1".

Reading isn't one of your strong points, now is it?

90's, 45's, offsets, saddles...I can handle. For some reason this threw me but I got it figured out.

It just looked hard. Even though both bends are different they still end up equaling 180* because the legs are perpendicular.

1" is twice half, so just double it. Math isn't one of your strong suits is it.

Your hand bending it, without a conduit bender? Good luck.

Best way to do bends is to mark a piece of scrap, and do a 90. This can be your reference for the rest of the bends.

Yea, I read right past that. They make hickeys for 1".

I would bend 112* and 68*, distance between centers would be about 27". Just a guess, I rarely bend over 95*.

It would be the 4th actually

I was wondering why no-one mentioned that yet.

Here's a link to say the same thing a 3rd time.

28 and 7/8ths.

There was 3 bends on this. I wanted a kick on the high end for a future beverage holder.

Yep, and if you're not a large man, getting leverage can be a bitch.

I messed one up, got it almost right on the second attempt and nailed it on the third.
