Quick Bend Instructions

 

Note: Itís best to level your conduit bender, but QB will work even if your bender is not level.
Note: Itís best to keep QB parallel and square to your conduit.

  

How to Bend an Offset

First, set QB to desired angle (see picture  1), then attach QB to your conduit, using the thumbscrew. Next, center vial B and vial C (see picture 2). Make your first bend until vial A is centered, be sure to allow for spring back (see picture 3). Next, move conduit to your second mark, and rotate conduit 180 degrees, by centering vial B, then lock conduit into place. If vial A is centered, your conduit bender is level. If vial A is not centered, you can level your bender until vial A is centered, or you can loosen thumbscrew and center vial A and vial B (see picture  4) without moving conduit, then reset thumbscrew. Make your second bend until vial C is centered, allowing for spring back (see picture 5). You should have a perfect offset.

How to Rotate Your Offset 90 Degrees

Before you take your offset out of the bender, you can set vial A to 90 degrees if vial B and C are centered (see picture 6). Then, slide conduit out to your mark and rotate until vial A is centered (see picture 7). Or you can remove QB and set vial A to 90 degrees, then attach to conduit and center vial B and vial C.  Then, slide conduit out to your mark and rotate until vial A is centered (see picture 7).

How to Bend a 90 Degree Angle and a Kick

First, set QB to 90 degrees (see picture 8). Then, attach QB to your conduit and center vials B and C (see picture 9). Make your bend until vial A is centered, allowing for spring back (see picture 10). If you need to make a kick, vial B should be centered, as long as your bender is level. If not, readjust QB until vials A and B are centered before moving conduit . Then, slide conduit to your mark and rotate conduit 90 degrees by centering vial C (see picture 11). Make your desired kick by measuring from the floor, or if you know your angle, use QB as shown in picture (see picture 12).

How to Check a 90 Degree Angle

 You can check a 90 degree angle while the conduit is still in the bender, or on the floor, conduit can be at any angle. First, set the base of QB on the horizontal run and center vial A (see picture 13). Then, hold QB up to the vertical run (see picture 14). If vial A is centered, you have a perfect 90 degree angle. The same principal can be used to check an offset.
