    Have you tried looking at a local supply house or maybe e-bay.

    Buy a Spring. No, you didn't give the size but a spring bender will work.
    Yes, I know I Shouldn't But I Just Can't Help Myself...

    Spring bender will work.

    Best bender I've tried is the Yellow Jacket ratcheting bender.

    Pricey, but damned effective.

    Have a look at the Rems Sinus bender, a bit pricey but does do very nice bends, also you can use the formers on the powered bender if funds allow an upgrade in the future.

    I too recommend the Yellow Jacket ratcheting bender. I'd be lost without mine.

    The OP is wanting to bend a 180 degree bend. (That's a "u".) I also have the Yellow Jacket Bender but to my knowledge it will not bend a 180.

    I've had cases where I needed two bends close together and had to use a spring.

    I don't know how some Tech's get by with a Swaging and Bender Set.

    That one never crossed my mind. I have one somewhere.

    LOL! I know what kind of bend the OP was talking about, and I've done a couple with the Yellow Jacket bender. You just have to be a little creative on how you use it, and work it around. Watched too much McGyver, and live in a farming community.

    check out imperial eastman refrigeration tools

    they have a lever bender for 1/4 5/16 3/8 1/2 that will do a 180

    as well as many other lever benders up to 7/8

    they also have a bench mount worm drive gear bender for production work

    i use the 180 feature on mine to duplicate factory style discharge line vibration loops
