Module 16 extends the basics of tube bending covered in Module 3 of the Installation Theory Course. It shows in a detailed step-by-step way how to set-up an adjustable bending machine. It then goes on to cover the techniques required to form bends of all types quickly, to a professional standard without creating drawings or wasting time or materials right from the start.
