Thought folks in here might want to see this post from my build log. My first foray into bending.

Into the bender it goes, and out comes.....


That doesn't look right. I don't think copper pipe is supposed to be flat on the side. Well, all is not lost. I can at least try my hand at using the pipe cutter.

I swear this wasn't threaded pipe. I feel like I can hear something. It's like a voice, with a british accent. I think I hear a small dog barking in agreement. He said something about 'Magoo'.


Looks like I need to work on my technique.

Open this in the background for the proper mood.




Time went on.

A fortnight passed, Michalius tirelessly worked on his Tube-Fu. With the wise words of BNeg and Magoo, he persevered.

Many pipes later. . .


Pretty good. Now to try out the real stuff.


Those are some serious *expletive deleted* pipe benders right there. Let's see how they work.



But can he cut?



Yes he can

Let me know if I should trim that down.

Isn't it just possible to get a few spare o-rings in the correct diameter? I doubt bitspower has custom o-rings made for these fittings.
I'd think a standard M16x1,5 (12mm ID, 1,5mm ring thickness) o-ring would do just fine. At 25 eurocents a pop you can't really go wrong with buying two to see if it works or not.
Now I think of it, aren't these O-rings exactly the same as the ones used for the G1/4 thread seal?
post #1066 of 2160
I've talked to a few companies, and seemingly from their model numbers, I've noticed a trend in their products. Of the (nice looking) 12mm all-metal, nickel-plated brass fittings, there is a "12-G02" designation. They usually use the same stock images or very similar stock images, implying they're all come from the same Chinese factory.




Will keep you guys updated as they respond.

Yes it would deffently be less expensive to just fit an o-ring, my only concern is in how the pipe inserts after its be cut, reamed and bent. I used the C47 for an example, but a Pipe with a +/- tolerance will let the oring fit, but will not make a correct seal in your fitting, I think your idea is great, but as I mentioned before if you going to do a copper/acrylic/glass/etc hardpipe build, you shouldnt be too worried over 8 euros, ($10.00 USD) for two extra fittings you can test your pipe with. I am only trying to give advice from my experience. Alot of the guys above will tell you that after "X" amount pushing on rigid pipe, the fitting's orings will get pretty chewed up. I personally use the same two, to do test fittings, once im satisified, I switch to new unopened fittings. Again, this is only my opinion smile.gif
post #1068 of 2160
Ah, you meant it like that!
I think I misunderstood you then and to be honest I think it's a brilliant idea to use one set of fittings to test-fit every run before you screw up more fittings. I will definitely order 2 extra fittings.

I will nevertheless measure the o-rings and see if I can find them somewhere so they could be replaced when they dry out after a few years.
post #1069 of 2160
If it's because they're dried out, I don't doubt you could probably shoot Bitspower an email about it and they'd help you out. Probably with some Swedish Fish, you'd convince them. tongue.gif

Haha, wow, that's an awesome story, I'll definitely remember that. Not so to make an RMA go quicker but just to make the technician smile.
Without those people we would have squad.

I already send bitspower an email with a question about the O-rings, when I get a reply I'll quote it here.
