    Here you have a way of bending PVC / Conduit quick and simply.
    All you have to have is a heat gun and a spring.
    This is all done in real time!!

    I've made one from copper pipe, bit heavier but robust!

    Another trick you can do if you dont have those items is to fill the pipe with sand, cap off the ends, and put it in the oven untill it softens up a bit, Then you can bend it and the sand will keep it from kinking.:thumbsup:

    You can do this with metal as well, not so much in the oven though, we used to put it in a fire, or use the blow torch.

    By the way you can get those springs from electrical places, they're used for bending electrical conduit.

    You can get those springs at most hardware or plumbing supplies also.
    Try to get a spring that is a prefect fit not too loose.
    The one we used is just an ordinary spring that was where they have assorted size springs.
    And as you seen in the video it is simple and quick to do as well.
