Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

Bending Pipe & Aid

BENDING PIPE
Although we offer the LMI Bending Machine and the Electric Free-Form Bending Iron to bend sides consistently and accurately to exact shapes, we also offer this12" long aluminum pipe for hand bending sides and bindings in the traditional manner. The pipe is mounted in a vice and heated internally with a propane torch. Although it requires developing skill through use, this method of hand bending over a pipe has been used for centuries and is still used by skilled builders all around the world.

BENDING AID (sold separately)
Our stainless steel bending aid makes bending on a pipe/iron a breeze. The hinged handles give you more control and a cooler grip. We still recommend that you use gloves when bending to avoid accidental burns.
