    Don't think so,a rasp is usually double cut b astard cut on both sides & single cut on the edges.

    You'd chamfer your soil pipe with one of those over a standard file mate?

    Yes, usually surform or rasp, have got a chamfer tool thingy for drill,but it's quicker by hand.

    Found this onYouTube other day,going to give it try,might not work on our thinner wall soil pipe.

    whynot use the public concrete foot path or similar to rub the end of your soil pipes around to create a chamfer.

    heck back in the day we used cast iron sewer drain grids to bend mild steel pipes,there was no room on the bicycle for a bender and no side saddles in them days

    How things have changed,if I have offended anyone then xxxoff or purchase the alternative pipe bending machine !

    Listen to Mr fancy pants, public footpath indeed, Back in my day we had no such luxury, had to make do with cobblestones, as for bicycle, those where for rich people, we bent our steel pipes by getting a horse to stand on them, if no horses where around we made an apprentice stand on them, sometimes we stood on the apprentice if he wasn't doing a decent job of it.
