Tried pipe bending for the first time tonight. First one I got to hot and it bubbled slightly in a spot. Second one I didn't quite heat enough of the tube, and got a ever so slight flat area in a bend. So, I am learning. I know it requires a lot of patience. Between needing to heat it up and not wanting to bubble it. It requires a fine touch.

One thing I did was to buy one of these. Really makes shorting the tube a breeze if you are just a shade to long, and it rounds over the edges really nice. Just make sure you buy the one for the ID and OD of the pipe you are using.

Just be careful with acrylic using that tool; you might end up chipping the ends. It works extremely well on copper/brass/PETG but not so well on acrylic.But you are right about fine tuning tube length (assuming you started long).

I don't really have it down. That was only my third attempt at it. But as I go along I should get better. But I don't think I'll ever be able to do those complicated bends. I just don't think i am quite that good.
