Pipe bending 101 - Page 38

We would love that deafboy, you buy it for us and have it shipped our address of choice, mine will be my proxy address in the US. And we can pay you something extra for smuggling it for us. thumb.gif However though I've heard prices for mcmaster were pretty steep, we should check first, around $9/meter would be okay for me.

Yes, it should. My bender was 1/2" and I used it for 12mm copper. The only bad part about my copper was that it was annealed and I froze water inside the pipes so the bends would be nice and smooth and not creased. Worked out pretty well.

Which fittings did you use for those 12mm pipes?

Guys what do you think about adapters that do NPT > BSPP. This could open up a lot ot choices for the copper pipe fittings. Do you think adapters will make the loop more restrictive somehow?

Take a look at this for example:

Open up choices in what sense? Most fittings that come in NPT come in BSPP, so unless you already have the NPT fittings it doesn't help much. IMO it kind of kills the look too, which is kind of the whole point of hard tube WC'ing.

You are right the fittings will end up too long which will ruin the look.
post #379 of 2174
Okay, I am looking hard to find G1/4 to 3/8 pipe push connect fittings.
I was told thet are on Amazon but I can't find them anywhere.
I can find G1/4 fittings but only to metric pipes. I can also find 3/8 pipe fittings but not to G1/4 thread.

Anybody here can point me somewhere?

Edit: I would even go for G1/4 to 1/2" pipe fittings too. That would be even better.
