Step 1Insert conduit into traveling shoe and rising shoe. Close the front abutment. 

Step 2Using the standard multiplier printed right on the machine, move the traveling shoe to the correct distance to match the desired height and degree of the bend. 

Step 3Raise the rising shoe to the desired bend height.

Description  Degrees  Multiplier 

Standard Multiplier To be applied to Traveling Shoe 
45 degrees of bend  1.41 times desired height 
30 degrees of bend  2.00 times desired height  
15 degrees of bend  3.86 times desired height  
Springback Formula Add to height of vertical scale 
45 degrees of bend  Add 5% 
30 degrees of bend  Add 10%  
15 degrees of bend  Add 20% 
To if you wanted to make a 30 degree, 12 inch offset bend, you would implement the Standard Multiplier and Springback Formula as follows:
Use Standard Multiplier to determine position of traveling shoe.
Slide the traveling shoe to 24" as shown on the carriage deck. For a 30 degree bend, the standard multiplier is 2.00 times the desired height. Since the desired height of the bend that you want to make is 12 inches, you would multiply 12 by the standard multiplier to determine the position of the traveling shoe (12 x 2.00 = 24).
Use Springback Formula to calculate the height of rising shoe.
Turn the crank until the rising shoe rises 13.2". For a 30 degree bend, you need to add 10% to the distance that you raise the rising shoe to compensate for the distance that the conduit pipe "springs back" when the bend is complete. The 13.2" height was calculated by adding 10% to the height of the bend for the spring back (12" + 10% = 13.2").
