8059Re: [new_distillers] bending copper tubing
- Jun 8, 2003As 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"
