Pipe bending 101 - Page 157

I think to buy directly from Festo you have to be a business/reseller. I believe oc_geek mentioned he got them from landefeld.de. Looks like he's in Europe.

Yes that's exactly correct on both points

For bender i've found (again EU residents here) very good shop in Uk (toolstop)
which resells RidGid tools (they also have ones for SS)
I'll take Bender 12mm, Reamer and Cutter there

Cheers

Has anyone tried the Bitspower Enhanced Multi-Link adapters with copper pipe? I'm guessing it's similar to using acrylic. Just wondering if these are any more secure than the standard C47.

I have just finished my build using those on acrylic and to me they work fine except they seem kinda hard to push the pipe into. I have never tried anything else so it's hard to say if that's normal. Getting them in was way harder than bending the pipe itself but with the double o ring design there is some leeway.

quick question, the "non bendable" description on the mcmaster-carr website is throwing me off

if i get the 12mm straight length ( 9935K16) and a rigid 412m bender (12mm bender)

can i bend the pipe in 90 degree turns or not?

thanks thumb.gif

Yes you can.
Non-bendable is bendable.
And if you have trouble bending a piece, you can anneal the piece, or heat it up and let it cool, to soften it up.

This is what my finished product looks like. Used 1/2" tube bender from here http://www.discounthydraulichose.com/product_p/ct364-08.htm
Soft copper coil 25' from here http://www.nybrewsupply.com/plumbing-fittings-tubing/tubing/copper-tubing.html .

Wasn't too hard given that I had never done it before, but now I'm looking forward to a planned redo once I splurge on a caselabs or little devil case. This time around I will have the finished tube polished, painted or plated.

Has anyone ever experienced a leak with BP C47 fittings? Anyone tested the enhanced crystal link fittings? Really wanna do this but I'm worried about leaks .-.
I'll probably use bitspower angle fittings and ordinary olive fittings if the C47s aren't safe.

Also, is there any real benefit to plating both the inside and the outside? (The local electroplaters charge extra for the inside)
