you use the correct size die? should match the pipe diameter or it will collapse it.

Well, you really need to use a mandrel bender to bend the kind of tube your wanting to bend. You might try filling it with sand or the like and see if it helps.

Fill your tube with sand before you bend it. The pressure it exerts back against the walls of the tube should prevent it collapsing.

Same concept as the Normal Force. Your feet press against the ground, and the ground presses back up against your feet.

mxv is right. you need dies. like a 90* for 2", 45* for 2.25" so forth and so on. the tubie needs a path to follow while it's bending or you just collapse it.
