      As you bend the pipe -- do it very slowly. Also pull
      on the end you are bending so there is constant
      tension (this keeps the pipe from collapsing). At any
      rate tight bent pipe does loses circular shape and
      becomes sort of ellipsoid in cross section, but it is
      OK -- keep trying... my personal record is "double
      helix" (meaning concentric two coils) fitting in 2"
      copper pipe.
