What is the part number for the screws for the sprocket assembly on a B2000?

There is a button head screw that holds the sprocket assembly in place on the B2000 bender. This is a common replacement part and is not listed in the parts breakdown.

Misc Item: ¼-20 x 3/8

Loc-tite is recommended to be used during the installation of this screw.

My B2000 is kinking/putting ripples in my conduit. Is the clamp that holds the conduit causing the problem?

When kinking, flattening or rippling of larger size conduit is resulting, it’s best to replace the rollers and shafts before replacing the clamping jaw. Usually the rollers have worn out and are just due to be replaced. This will cure about 95% of all these issues. Also, make sure that there is an ample amount of conduit sticking out past the clamping jaw. If the end of the conduit is too close to the clamping jaw, it will start to flatten the conduit as it is bent due to the force being put on the conduit. The bending shoe and conduit may also need to be sprayed with a bit of WD-40. If the conduit is sticking to the bending shoe, it will start to pull and stretch the conduit which can cause deformation in the conduit.

If you are having this problem with PVC-Coated Rigid Conduit, try cleaning the shoe and conduit with rubbing alcohol. This is recommended by one of the leading manufactures in PVC-Coated Conduit.

B2000 Circuit Board Error Codes.

A troubleshooting aid exists on the printed circuit board
mounted to the inside of the operating handle. A white L.E.D.
will flash once every two seconds after power up. The L.E.D.
indicates all systems functional. See the Figure below.
Error codes consist of different light patterns.

1. Blink twice, pause, blink twice = the motor is over heated.

2. Blink 3 times, short pause, blink three times, long pause =
limit switch has failed.

3. Blinks 4 times, short pause, blinks four times, long pause =
pendant control malfunction.

In addition the L.E.D. will be steady on if the bend or return
button is being pressed.

Bending PVC-Coated Rigid with the B2000.

When bending PVC-Coated Rigid with the B2000 Cyclone bender you will need to use the EMT side and always use the next size up to bend it. The B2000 can only bend up to 1-1/2″ PVC Coated Rigid. So when trying to bend 1-1/2″ PVC Coated Rigid you’ll want to use the EMT side and the 2″ size in order to bend this conduit. Cleaning the shoe and conduit with rubbing alcohol is also recommended for bending the PVC-Coated Rigid so that it does not attempt to grab the coating material.

Failure to follow these guidelines will cause the conduit to kink and/or flatten. In some instances it will also cause the bending shoe to peal the coating off of the conduit.
