used a series of clamps and wood blocks to get the bend in it, first
doing the top one and letting it cool, then clamping it and doing the
second bend. The fukurin is actually standard aquarium tubing split
down the center and painted gold. I'm not sure how well the tubing
will stand up to the abuse of a good fight, but I guess I'll find out.
I figured at $.97 for 8 feet of tubing, I could afford to give it a try.
