"How to Match 90  Bends With Ease:"

From: Tim Chism

Say you are running 1" rigid beside a 2" rigid in a rack, and you come to a 90. To match this 2" 90 just take your 1" and put it in the 2" shoe of your bender and bend. This 1 " 90 will now have the same radius as the 2"  90. One would think that using a bigger shoe for a smaller pipe it would flatten it. Well, I have tried this and it works not to say that it want flatten it if you happened to get a weaker piece of pipe. Also, this trick will only work on rigid, if tried with EMT it will just collapse the pipe.
