For sizes 2-½” to 4″ hydraulic benders are available from Calbrite®. Greenlee 881CT.
For hand cutting and threading use standard cutting tools: either a roller cutter or a saw.
Use any conventional vise to clamp the stainless-steel conduit, either a yoke type or a chain type. Calbrite® half-shell clamps with a neoprene gasket are recommended for use with the chain type vise.
