Pipe bending 101 - Page 26

post #251 of 2174
The acrylic tubing looks very interesting. Now I am on the fence again with copper tubing versus acrylic tubing.

anyone knows how to exactly use a pipe cutter? It would really help to show how to use it on both acrylic and copper. I changed my plans and will switch to acrylic piping and Bitpower's Multi-Link adapters.
It would really help to know how to use a tool beforehand, since the only acrylic pipes I found in my country are sold in 2-meter long pieces and I'm scared to death to crack one of those when trying to cut the correct length.
I'm probably getting 4 meters for about 24USD, which is a good price in my opinion.

thanks in advance for any reply.

The first part of this video shows cutting copper tube. For cutting acrylic, the cutter used in the video isn't going to work very well. They make ones for pvc that would do a better job, but I would probably just use a hacksaw or something with a bit of sanding to clean the end up.

These guys sell adapters in PVC clear.

i think that's kind of missing the point when your trying to minimize flow restriction frown.gif

they do sell some interesting stuff tho, and there in the states which might make things easier for some of you.

Nice job, really looks good. I was going to go with the copper but wanted to try the plexy tubing first and see how it worked. The copper also wouldn't go with the theme I was looking for in my build. I would have to have the tubing chromed or something and that is more steps than I wanted to go through.

I finally got my Mipps water block in so I did some bending. I tried the spring in the tube on the first one but it left little ribs in the corners, that was on the two 90 degree bends. Can't hardly see them but don't know what they will look like when water is running thru them. On the U shaped one just did it with no spring and I think it turned out pretty good.

Let me know what you think...

U's like that might not hold the best, just be mindful they may work loose over time

Believe me I have thought about all that kind of stuff and will do a lot of leak testing. I even thought about putting on a small amount of silicone sealant on the O-rings if I have to. But playing with these fittings they hold on to the tubing pretty tight.
But thank you for the heads up.
