We got our hands on both 15mm & 22mm benders both so easy to use EXCEPT when bending on a fuull length of 22mm as bottom leg is 90 degree to pipe so no lenerage possible !!!!

Best purchase by far when it comes to pipe bendera, had roberg, hilmor but these new style monuments are f***ing awesome. Easy to use and nice and lightweight, the extenders are great for that extra reach when bending.
Not bothered that each bender is seperate just saves the hassle of having to find the guides each time.

Brilliant design cant fault it

These are by far the beat buy I have done in a long time. I was forever losing guides and greasing benders.

I bought the extended versions of monument nothing to lose never crimps the pipe and it’s easy to use only improvement I would say would be put the deg marks on both sides

Decided to buy a set 15 and 22. I found you needed the extension bars to make it a bit easier use. Sight line is better when setting up a bend. Can be a bit fiddly until you have got used to them.

Purchased the 15 mm benders after reading a lot of reviews on plumbing sites . Light and easy to use the longer handles would be great, but looking forward to trying out the 22 mm benders.

Great product, I’ve been after some new benders for a while and having had mixed reviews on the traditional style bender I was keen to give these a go, I started with 15mm set and got the 22mm as soon as they were released, they seem well made so will hopefully last a long time.

One of the best tools I’ve purchased recently.
They give an amazing finish to the pipe and are so much easier to use than the standard pipe menders and formers. I have the 15mm but will be buying the 22mm and extension handles next.

I have the monument 1315xve copper pipe bender for 15mm pipework.
Excellent build quality, compact and lightweight. No losing your former as it’s build in the design.
Pulls bends easily and with no ripples.
Highly recommended.

Absolutely great product. No fiddly guide that you put down then go back to find it to form another bend and can’t find it again. Wouldnt go back to my old bender for 15 mm now. If you don’t have one of these already get it now.

Solid piece of kit, no flimsy parts and feels strong when using, built in former seems to be built in really well. So much easier to use than a traditional bender, the bender holds the copper in place for you, doesn't fall out, no tricky balancing needed to keep everything in situ before bending, the bender does it for you - perfect. The way that this is put together is perfect - from the built in former, how it is in two pieces makes, and also how the copper is held solid by the first piece before attaching the second piece, really well designed. Absolute bargain for your money, I was really shocked how cheap they were to buy, and they are well worth the money if not more. I am so happy with mine and cannot wait for my 22mm.

Strong and sturdy pipe benders. I rated ease of use at 5 stars because I find that there is no friction on the slide. I think it's a great price for a good piece of kit.

All casting and brazing/welding seems of a very high quality and removable parts that may eventually wear come listed on a sheet of paper with the product. Even without the handle extensions bending 15mm copper is easy enough to do, the bender guide being fixed in place also makes it less fiddly and saves time. They fit in my tool bag, you don't have to waste time finding and inserting a bender guide, they're light and bend consistently without kinking or rippling copper pipe. Fair price for a tool that will last you forever!

The former guide is plastic and moves around, plus I don't like that the two arms are detached with no way to lock them together. Easy to use but would be easier if you could lock the two arms into position. Not bad for the price.

Love the raw finish so you won't notice scratches on the bender. So much easier, finally a bender that can fit in my tool bag and no more carrying of formers. The built in former is a big revolution for me only having to keep the bender without any formers it's mint. £40ish so realistically when I buy the 22mm it will cost £100 all in and the bender I had cost me £90 but no built in formers and the build quality was worse, and the scratches highlight the paintwork.

Very well made, light and user friendly. Super easy to use with notches for the particular angle you want. Able to extend the arms if required and pull the correct angles for crossovers without guessing. They are expensive as you'll require 1 for 15mm and 1 for 22mm but still good value for the quality.

My only fault for this product is that it comes apart in two pieces. So those two pieces get lost around the van. For a cleaner tradesperson - all good but I am messy. Was fine doing pipe, I have the small ones so larger probably 5 stars. I'm grateful the former doesn't get lost all the time. Seems a fair price. Won't know how long it lasts though as only had it a week so far.

The bender feels nicely weight balanced and solid in construction. Ease of use all depends on your personal strength but I find it excellent that I can remain in a kneeling position and use the bender with no problem. It's a real nice piece of kit and great to fit in your tool bag or box, I think it's got a great chance of being bought by the trade. For a well made piece of equipment like this I thought the price was very good especially as I got the free 15mm pipe slices thrown in as a deal.

A great product and looks solidly built but not all of the lips from the aluminium casting have been ground off leaving sharp edges, otherwise I would happily give 5 stars. Very simple and quick operation. I'd of liked to of seen some degree markings cast onto the benders for young apprentices and also a way of storing the two separate parts together. These are at the upper end of what I expect to pay but I'd rather keep my money in the UK so I am happy to support British manufacturers. They also came with a free set of pipe cutters when I bought them which made them great value.

Good solid construction, no rollers to come loose like on conventional pipe benders. Not sure how long the built-in nylon guide will last but time will tell. Little bit more fiddly than a conventional bender to start with but most likely because that's what I was used to, nylon guide was nipped a bit tight to start with but Monument were very quick to put out a post to inform us how to rectify. Less parts to get lost, nice and simple to use, pretty tight and neat bends, lightweight, 2 piece allows for easy storage. If you compare to the Bahco 15mm bender at 3x the cost, this is great value for money, doesn't do 180 degree bends but looks just the same if you do two 90 degree bends close together.

Knurled handles and the 2 handles interlock nicely. I like that the former can be replaced as well. Slots together with ease and 15mm bends easily even with the short handles. Unsure at the longevity but I'll see how I get on with it. Fits in my toolbox, no looking for formers and well made and designed.

Great lightweight product compared to the old style bender. Everything seems solid and made to last, my only concern would be the nylon former and if that gets knocked in the van and damaged. Really simple to use, I love the fact it is now on one plane which makes "eyeing" up multiple bends on one length of copper much easier. So light in the hand and with the long handled version that I bought it is very easy to pull a bend and match it up to the pre marked angles on the guide. Great how the two pieces just slot together, don't have to carry formers round with you so no losing those or putting them down and searching around for 5 minutes looking for them! I think it's a superb product and build quality is great which I have come to expect from Monument Tools. I do think it could be made and sold a little cheaper though as when buying both the 15mm and 22mm versions you are talking well over £100 and you can pick a decent combi bender up for between £40-£60.

Very well made, they feel solid, very good weight balance. Not been able to test fully on site but when bending a few bits lying around, the copper locked in and stayed in. It's very easy to see the angle you're bending, great for getting neat accurate square bends. Very good length and having the guide fixed in place is a life saver. I couldn't really compare on price as I haven't bought benders since an apprentice. But whether they are cheap or expensive I don't mind paying for a quality product made in Britain supporting British brands.

The build quality of these benders is fantastic, from the perfect casting of the formers to the excellent grips on the handles, everything is perfect. Easy to pull a bend and great for lining up offsets and pass overs as the handles, guide and former are all in line. Bends pipe well and is light and compact, a pleasure to use. Worth every penny, excellent quality.

Really like the feel of the benders, they feel solid and well made. Can't really go wrong with them to be honest, the 4 'degree' indicators are very clear and help a lot. The fact that they bend on the same plane makes them way more accurate than anything I've been used to. It's worth the money to pay for something that actually works and gives a better result.

Small and easy to carry, gave a nice size bend with no crimping, so much easier to judge by eye that you have the right bend you need. Decent size, not too long or weighty and locks in straight away without having to clip a lock bar over and then fit the former in place to stop it from falling out like old benders used to do. Time saving, sturdy and very easy to use.

Really solid build quality with very little to go wrong. Really easy to use and can get in much smaller spaces compared with the combined type bender. The best feature for me is bending on the same plane - I find it much easier. I actually think they are quite cheap since they are just a different level of quality to any other bender I have used.

Robust construction and no parts to lose such as form guides. Easiest bender I've used to date. Normally I'd reach for a press fitting but I'm actually forming more bends than ever. Easy to use and compact design. Add up what you'll save in fittings and they'll pay for themselves in no time at all.

Sheer quality. Everything fits together beautifully well made. The feel of the benders in your hands makes you feel secure without slipping. Locks into pipe correctly. Because of the build quality and the way the pipe clicks into place it gives you the confidence to correctly bend pipe without stress or kinks. Fantastic with built in guide so no losing that. With a quality tool and one piece operation it outclasses the opposition hands down with the ease of single bender size it's easy to know what tool is doing the job without fiddly bits to lose or reversing the tool to do larger pipe but Monument have covered that too. They make a 22mm as well. Well done Monument. Pride in our British made tools pride of place in my tool bag. Thank you.

I have used a combined bender for well over 20 years, but these break the rule book. Lightweight but robust and the way the pipe is sighted is a game changer. Easy to pull a bend even with the short arms, can carry in my tool box also which is a bonus. Best feature is that the former is built in, so no 10 mins root around in the tool box for that. Price point on these is spot on and ease and time saved will pay you back in no time.

The build quality is great with quality materials and a good feel to them. They pull nice tight bends and they are small and lightweight so can be carried in a small tool bag. Very easy to use, simply put the pipe in and click the other half of the bender together and pull away. The built in guide is great as they can easily be lost or damaged if loose. These benders should last for years as the build quality is of a high standard so in my opinion they are great value for money.

Everything feels tight and there's no flex in any of the bits, everything fits nice and snug. The weight is just right so that it feels quality but light enough to use. Not difficult at all to get a bend started and once it's going it's smooth all the way. The length of the handles is perfect, you don't need excessive force to do a bend. Love the 2 piece system and not having separate formers to insert. Once the pipes in place it's easy to place a pre bent pipe in the correct angle as the handles and bend are all in one plane line. Markings for angles are clear and easy to use. Well worth the money and also look great!

The benders are lightweight, compact and easy to use. The built in former is so handy as you can't lose it in your van or forget it on the job, and the way it compacts into two pieces makes it easier to store. It takes a bit of getting used to like all new tools but once you get it they're as easy to use as the old benders. I rated value for money at 4 out of 5 stars due to having to buy the 22mm bender alongside the 15mm.

These benders feel absolutely solid. I was a touch apprehensive at first with regards to the nylon but in all honesty I actually prefer it. It seems to give a much smoother bend and the metal arms feel like they will last forever. Being 15mm, that size copper is always easy to bend. But what I love with the Monument benders is even though they're much smaller in size, there are still no problems with bending 15mm pipe. All bend markings are in a good place, and the fact that your bending arm is in the same plane as your pipe, it makes it so much easier to get your sets completely straight and even. Value for money rated at a 5 because I have bought much worse benders for more money than these. Think that says it all!

Well this pipe bender is light and has built in formers, what can I say no searching for mangled formers, big bonus, the bend is smooth and very clean. The bend looks very tidy and does not appear to be as reduced or stretched in diameter. My only gripe is that a small draw bag might make it easier to store, with perhaps a loop to hang it. I expect the bag will end up carrying fitting as well. It's quick, it avoids the risk of a slipping former, it squares up easy, it's light and it even looks cool. Light, accurate, less fuss. When I buy tools I prefer something that will last without a stupid price tag and this fits the bill. If they were stolen I would be able to replace them without speaking to my bank manager first!

Hello, it's Michael here from Glennon Plumbing Services. Today, I'm going to review the Monument 15mm Small Pipe Bender. I was sceptical at the start because you have to buy two. I'm normally used to my Hilmor where I've got the 15 guide and a 22 mm guide built in, whereas these come in either a 15 or a 22 version. However, when I'm working on a job where I've just got 15 mm, it is a bit handier carrying just a small set rather than me big clumpy bending guide.

This set comes with two extension pieces that you just screw into the bottom of your 15 mm bender if needed. Myself, I don't need to bend it to 15. My one I've found has been a little bit temperamental on the threads, so maybe it's just a little bit of manufacturing swarf or something so try on this one. There we go, straight into that one. Let's see, and here goes. Right. This is actually the first time I've used the extension being as I haven't needed them. Well, that's not screwing in which isn't good straight off the bat. It's not the best. I don't need extension pieces anyway, probably would for the 22 mil bender if it's the same length as that.

To start off, so there's the former, start off by putting the 15mm like that in and hold, unlike our normal Hilmor where it flips over and you have to keep on guiding it in, it does hold it in. Then, you just take that, slide it over there, and onto the hook and that's done. So in real time, that's how quick it is. Then nice little bend. As you can see, no ripples whatsoever. Nice smooth bend.

In all honesty, I don't know if I'd go out and buy two separate benders and then have to carry two separate benders on the job, it's a little bit pricey at the moment to buy two separate ones when you can buy one for 65, Hilmor, but that said, it has been handy and is compact. If you want to keep it tidy, as you can see, it slides straight into your bag although it may weigh you down a bit. Right, that's been my review from Glennon Plumbing Services. Sorry it took so long, and see you on the next one.


14th January 2021

Hello, my name's Joel from CopperOak Property Services. Today I'm doing a review on the Monument 15mm bender. Thanks again to Tool Talk for sending it out. I've literally just open the box and have a little play around with it. It's pretty straight forward. In the box, you've got the two main arms of the bender and a couple of extensions. I've bent a few bits without the extensions. It's easy done, but the extensions just give you that bit more leverage and makes it easy to bend.

They feel nice and solid to hold, really light. Nice and light, to be honest. Built in guide which is good. It is made of plastic, so potentially could be a problem, but it's got a nut on it so if you ever wanted to get a replacement, I suspect they'd be easy to replace if you ever damaged it. Good thing is you can't lose it. That's the only main working part on it. You don't need to have the captive bit flapping back and forward.

As you can see, practised a few bends a second ago, just to make sure I knew what I was doing. So I've never used one before, seen them around, wasn't sure if they were a bit of a gimmick, but I've got to say, really impressed. Really easy to use. Slot the pipe in, hook on, guide's already on, bang. Ready to bend.

Every bend I've done has been really smooth. No flat spots, no kinks. I've just recently taken on an apprentice. I think for him, it's going to be much easier to use. He's a bit cack handed trying to get the guide in and lock in the pipe at the same time, I think this is going to take that point out of it.

Again, if you're working with one pipe at a time, predominantly doing 15 on a job, 22 on a job, I think it's a big time saver. Big time saver. Nice and easy to use. I don't know how tight we can do the tightest bend. I'll give it a go. That's pretty tight. Yep, it still kept it. I don't think I can get to quite 90 on it, because I think I was going to roll it off. But it's still nice and flat. No kinks on it. Really good.

Monument Tools, they're always solid, they're always decent. I don't think you can go wrong. I think they're about 50, 60 pounds each for the 15 and the 22, which is probably a bit more than just your standard normal bender that does both, but I think it's easier. I think they're nicer to use. They feel easier to use. You're not going to lose your guide, which is something, because that's a pain in the arse. Yeah. Really happy with it. Really good. I'll definitely be buying the 22. See you on the next one.


11th December 2020

The Extended XVE 15 millimetre Copper Pipe Bender designed for bending 15 millimetre copper pipe. It will only do 15 millimetre copper pipe, if you want to do 22mm you would need additional pipe bender to 22mm.

So what's in the box? The pipe bender itself comes in two actual parts which simply clip together to create a pipe bender. You can see a former or the nylon guide which creates a bend. It's permanently attached so you won't be losing that, it won't be lost in the van or having problems finding it.

It also comes with two extending pieces. To extend the arms for extra leverage where required. And you simply screw in to the arms. Where the actual clips go onto the tabs, that actually is the point where the bend will start. So, as long as you line your bend up with... you pipe it with that point, you'll know that's where the pipe's going to bend. So it saves all that measuring and messing about with that.

So, you put the pipe in, 15mm pipe. I want it to start to bend it there, so I'll leave that in line with the tabs. Clip it on and then simply through 90 degrees, bend it round, Just nice and easy to do with the extended arms. Pipe then clips apart, and you can see, you got a nice bend with no throating and no problems.

So, the useful locator, the pipe bend which creates where the pipe bend starts. We got the extension arms, it's got the permanently attached form which I think is a fantastic feature of this. The amount of times that we lose or misplace these and end up buying a new one. That's good. It's dedicated to 15 millimetre pipe, you won't get 22mm on there, but at least it's dedicated to that.

I think one of my favourite aspects of it is the fact that it's interchangeable and fits into quite a neat package. Will fit nicely into any box, any toolbox and can be self contained within that. Creates nice bends, 90 degrees as I said, no throating on there.

Would I recommend it? I would highly recommend it. I think it's a great piece of kit. It basically does what it says it does. It's in my opinion removes the problem of losing the formers and it enables you to start the bend easily by locating it in the guides.

So, really I think it's well worth the money. And I'll recommend it to other plumbers, other people who are actually looking to get themselves a pipe bender. As I said, it's a Monument Tools and it's the Extended Pipe Bender, the XVE 15 millimetre.

First, thanks to Tool Talk for sending me the Monument 15 mil bending machine with extendable bars. It's a two piece kit held together with a Velcro. First piece, it's got the integrated slide guide former or whatever you'd like to call it. Plastic, but it is removable so I think any problems in the future, you can always change it. Nice and long. Easy for bending.

Second piece has got the integrated pipe holder. No fiddly claps. The pipe is all cast. A couple of markings on the side, 30, 45, 60, 90 degrees. Easy for when you get the bends, they're nice to have. Pipe goes in, once it's in, solid, no messing around. Hooks straight together, and the guide falls straight into place. Nice, easy bend. Straight out. All good. Very nice piece of kit.

Thank you. I'll look forward to using this a lot more in the future, making the jobs just that little bit easier. Thanks Tool Talk.

Hey everyone, my name is Mark Edwards, MJE Plumbing and I'm here to review the Monument 15mm pipe benders. I've had these for a few days now and in all fairness, they are really good, they really are good. They do exactly what they say, they're very light weight, they pull a tighter bend because the former is actually a lot smaller. Here we are, we'll show you now. You can get your pipe in there, that's sat in there, you don't need another hand then to get your former in so what you do is you put it in, there's plenty of markings around the outside and as you bend, go down a bit further and go a lot tighter. It's a lot neater, all in all I think it's fantastic, really good, really quality British made bit of kit. Thoroughly thoroughly recommend them.

They come with the...you can buy them with the extenders just to screw into the bottom and that way then you've got a little bit more leverage. Also, I have been told that you can screw these into the top of the rads to hang the rads on. Never tried it, but it's a good shout. All in all I'd definitely highly recommend them and yeah check it out, thank you Tool Talk, thank you everybody. Cheers.

Hi, this is John from JPC Plumbing and Heating. I'm here to do a tool review for Tool Talk on the Monument 13, 15 XVE 15 mil copper pipe bender. So straight out of the box, you get the pipe bender, the Velcro strap for storage, two extension bars that easily screw into the end of the bender to make pulling a bend just that little bit easier. And obviously the instructions.

First impressions is it's lightweight relative to your conventional combi bender. Feels well-made, nice and solid. Easy to pull a bend. You just place copper pipe in connect the second part to it, and then bend away. As I say, it has its advantages. Has some markings for set bends already put in the guide. The former itself is in situ so you don't have a chance of losing that. As it is without the extensions 15 mil pipe, easy to bend really. I guess the extensions will come in handy if you've got a lot of pipe bending to do. But yeah, I'd probably put them on once you get onto site.

The pipe bend itself, pretty neat. No rippling as such on the pipes I've done so far. A disadvantage is that the 15 mil pipe copper pipe bender does what it says, it will only bend 15 mil pipe and to do 22 mil pipe, you'd have to buy a second pipe bender. To me, that's not an aspect that would stop me buying the 22, but since I've got a combination bender, I'd probably still keep that handy 22 mil pipe work and I'd probably use this as my first port of call for jobs. Take it in.

It's just the right size to fit into your toolbox. It's lightweight. So it's not going to add too much to your actual bag. Overall, quite impressed with it. I definitely recommend it for anyone who was looking out for a new pipe bender or to replace an old one. And yeah, it's a good piece of kit.

I would think it'll be very useful to anyone who's established or is an apprentice. Just like to thank Tool Talk for the opportunity to test these and give you a review. And I hope you found it useful. Thank you.

Hi, this is Andy from Bennett's Safe Gas, thank you Tool Talk for the tool. This is just to show you the Monument tool, the new pipe bender. This is the 15 mil 13115 XVE for you that care about that. Yeah, simple design. Comes with a plastic guide. It's not actually plastic, it's nylon. So it's a bit tougher and slippier than plastic, so that helps.

Simply clicks together, bends. You've got your graded markings here. That's 30 degree, 45, 60, 90, standard for all benders. And nice, convenient size. When you're not using it, easily goes into your tool box. Makes carrying a lot easier. I'll just show you a simple bit of pipe bending. Hooks in, just like that. No more effort than any other bender. As you can see, nice bend. No ripples as some of the cheap ones did. So all in all, good bender.

You've also got these handy extensions, they do simply screw to the bottom, just in case you need a bit more oomph. Probably a lot better on a 22 mil bender. My favourite of them is probably... Is exactly the same size as a radiator but I haven't got any on site to show you. The vents and cap end, remove them, they screw in, big radiator, two people, you're just going to carry it. That's probably my favourite bit of the whole thing, other than it being simple to use.

Yeah, all in all, very good bender. The 22 is obviously available. Maybe they do a package, you can get the two together. Yeah, great tool. Thank you Tool Talk for sending it over.

You all right guys, Dan here from SIA Property Services. I'm just doing a quick review on the Monument Bender. I've heard a lot of good things about it. As a bathroom installer, well, kitchen and bathroom installer, I don't do a great deal of pipe bending and stuff. It's often just small alterations. I get in a right mess, like probably a lot of people who don't do it day in, day out, with conventional benders. Getting your angles right, getting your bends right. I was intrigued to have a go at this one. First things about it, the size. I mean, conventional benders, you're in a room and you're trying to twist and turn and stuff. Yeah, we all know how much of a faff they are.
These ones, sit in there, clip in there and off you go. You've got markings on the side for your angles and just in case it's a Saturday morning job, they've thought of everything. Saturday morning, Friday night out on the beer, you've got no strength in you. You can even get the handle extenders, just in case you're feeling a little bit week on a Saturday morning for a friends job. Couple of handle extenders, obviously they do the 22mm as well. This is literally the first time, I've just taken it out of the box, first time using it and it's so simple. So simple, so easy, well made. I've heard a few people say, oh well what about the Former, it's plastic whatever, but it's replaceable.
All in, it's a super simple, super easy, convenient bit of kit that comfortably fits in your tool bag. It's not a big clunky thing. You're not going to lose the Former. How many times have we all done that? All in, does what it says on the tin. Ask for Monument because it's a cracking bit of kit. Anyone who's got any doubts if it's worth it, straight out of the box I think it's worth it. Give it a blast. Cheers Tool Talk for sending it over to me. Yeah, I appreciate it. It's a cracking bit of kit.
