I did the same thing on a smaller scale. Had to make a tight 180 degree bend in 1/2 inch stainless. I couldn't find a mandrel that small. I had the mandrel bend to keep it from collapsing and/or cracking. Took a while but I finally got it done.

The dies are so pricey, Iím looking for ideas to build my own when I pick up a bender. I already bought a tool to cut circular grooves on the lathe, but this mill method is way more flexible. It was not obvious to me.
