What is the toe of a conduit bender?
The toe of the bender must be toward the end of the conduit that was measured from. In our example, the bender toe will be just under 50″ from the end of the conduit with the heel of the bender on the 70″ end of the pipe. Apply firm foot pressure to the foot pedal and slowly press the handle down, bending the conduit.
How many conduit benders give at least one type of bender?

How do you use a hickey bender?
Place the “start” end of the conduit against a wall. Slip the hickey over the other end and line it up with the “bend” mark. If the hickey has a mark that reads “0,” line up that mark with the “bend” mark. Pull up on your bender handle until the conduit is vertical.
