Pipe bending 101 - Page 214

post #2131 of 2175
25.4 mm in an inch.

10 mm ~ 0.3937 in
12 mm ~ 0.47244 in

The inside diameter (10 mm) doesn't matter much, but the outside diameter you need to get close to 12 mm. I don't know if 1/2" tubing would be OK but I doubt it.

There is no direct conversion for pipe size between metric and imperial, they don't make exact same pipe sizes for both units. Closest one would be 3/8 1/2 and will work with most of compression fittings with o-ring compression colar as its tolerance is quite wide. Just dont try to use them with push-in fittings like rocket science or koolance ferrule fittings.

I am also very interested. I've seen a few hand benders for stainless steel but I'm wondering if anyone else had tried to hand bend titanium tubes...

What are the best benders for 12mm pipe? I'm looking for something that will bend with the tightest radius while not deforming the pipe. I am struggling. Hope an experienced member can help me out?

It has less material strength than steel,just much lighter.

That is the same one i had used and works very well.
Looked around for tighter bends as well as you and landed on this one. Combined with good semi-rogid copper pipe works a charm after some practice for mm accuracy

Quick question, does anyone know if 1/2" (12.7mm OD) copper tubing will fit in EK HDC fittings? I know that EK states to use 12mm tubing, but I am having some difficulty finding exactly 12mm in OD tubing, and wonder if there is enough wiggle room in the EK HDC fittings to work with 12.7mm tubing.
