Hot Rod -REMS Curvo question?

Hot Rod, a while back you mentioned you were able to bend 1 1/4" copper with your Curvo. Was the 1 1/4" a special order? Also what grade of pipe bends better, M or L? I have a job that I could use the 1 1/4" on but can't find it listed in the catalogue.

    the part #581350. that should be the 34.9mm or 1/3/8"

    I have used M, L & K. M sometimes puckers on the inside portion. a shot of WD-40 on the tube and both surfaces of the bender makes a big difference.

    I have also bent 3/4" schedule 40 steel pipe with mine.

    Shook manufacturing or www.rnrtools may have those formers in stock?

    I will contact Shook today. They are only 50 miles from me, so if it is in stock, I'll be walking in tall cotton!
