4994Re: [loopantennas] BENDING COPPER TUBING
- Mar 1, 2008Use a tubing bender!
It's a long spring type tool that goes over the full length of the bend, it keeps the tubing from going out of round!
Lowe's, home depot etc...

When I raced model boats we would heat the copper
tube with a bernzamatic torch until red hot then
drop it into a bucket of water to cool.The part
that was heated will be softer and bend easily
without kinking.If desired it can be heated again
and immersed into OIL to harden it up.
