Review for Monument 15mm & 22mm Pipe Benders by Roy Millar Plumbing and Heating
28th September 2020

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.

Review for Monument 15mm & 22mm Pipe Benders by Optimum plumbing
26th August 2020

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.

Perfect bend every time and easy to use. Ergonomic. There isn't any other pipe bender in the market to form quality bends every time - £58 so I think that's reasonably priced.

26th August 2020

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.

Good solid steel piece which has everything you need to bend well. Well made, easy to use, like the fact the guide is attached and can be easily carried around in my tool bag. Cheaper and better than my old one.

Built with quality materials and superb design. So much easier than using a combined bender. Easy to set up and pull a bend. Ergonomically excellent. The nylon guide sits snug. A simple yet innovative idea that breaks down into an easily storable bit of kit.

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.

It seems to have been crafted brilliantly...can't fault the quality. It's a dream to use, makes the hold style benders seem primitive. It's great having the built in former saves time and makes it quicker to pull bends. Can't complain about the cost based on everything I have mentioned.

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.

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.

They seem solid, are shiny and look decent. I have the long handled version, they are only 6 inches longer and make bending the pipe a doddle. I think compared to other benders on the market these are better and worth buying.

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.

These benders are made from excellent materials and tooled to the highest standards. Perfectly small, easy to use, smooth bends. Best bender on the market and worth every penny.

Review for Monument 15mm & 22mm Pipe Benders by Nickthegas
24th July 2020

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.

Light but strongly built and fits into tool bag. The angles are marked to aid pulling bends and offsets. The guides are built in with a machine. I have used other pipe benders of this particular build and this is the best without doubt.

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.

Light weight and very well made. These benders are much better than the combi benders - easy to carry easy to use and great for close bends. If you hate bending then get yourself a set of these, you will love bending pipe after using them. Great value for money and made in the UK.

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.

I'd recommend this product to any heating or plumbing engineer! Mine came branded as well which looks professional. Thanks again for supporting the trade. Definitely value for money.

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!

Review for Monument 15mm & 22mm Pipe Benders by The Boiler Guys
16th July 2020

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!

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.
