BogMonster Posted August 23, 2006 Share Posted August 23, 2006 How easy is it to bend galvanised pipe? Nothing to do with Land Rovers but I need to make some "modifications" to the A frame on my boat, as I can't fit the auxiliary engine with it in the way. I have only ever tried working with galv once before to make a "heavy duty" set of motorbike handlebars and it worked OK or so I thought - till they snapped on a heavy landing and I got a face full of speedo so I assume it's fairly brittle.... Would you/could you use a normal tube bender? the A frame on there is made of 1.5" (approx - haven't measured it) galvanised pipe and basically I need to put an extra "wiggle" in each side to make it wider to clear the engine. Any thoughts on this would be gratefully received - the option is to buy a shiny bling 316 stainless one but it'll be 3 months coming and probably cost the thick end of a grand stainless boat things are stupidly expensive Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
