How to bend a pipe in an even arc?
I'm wanting to make some pieces of bent pipe to support plastic over garden beds.
I've used pvc before and, while it's easy to bend, it doesn't work well for me. (flimsy)
I'd like to be able to bend 3/4" EMT into an even arc about four feet across at the bottom end. Sort of a steel hoop (think Splitergroupies hoophouse) instead of plastic.
I could probably bend the piece numerous times with a conduit bender, but I could never make repeated pieces that were entirely matched. Plus, I'd wind up with a somewhat bumpy outside rather than the even arc I'd like to have.
Anyone know how to do this?
