Pipe bending 101 - Page 52

post #511 of 2174
You are in the USA so you can easily get 10mm pipes of your choice from.McMaster.com
I should be so lucky since they won't ship to Canada.
Knce you have the 10mm pipes of your chouce, you can get 10mm push-fit fittings from aquatuning. Those fittings are cheap. And they will make it a lot easier to build/tear down your loop. Me, I just dont like the look of those Koolance fittings and I don't like that they are one time use, but that's me.

Btw, I base alk this on what I read so far, I have yet to build a metal loop.

Hey PepeLapiu, I got my 10mm straight pipes from coppertubingsales.com and I'm from the Philippines. They shipped the pipes through my proxy address and my courier delivered it to me. Maybe you can have them delivered directly to you via UPS. You should go and ask them.

Thanx!
I could not find any straight pipes, only coiled ones in the 10mm flavor, when searching their site. But I shoot them and email to see it they have it.

Thanx a lot +rep

I just did a quick check and the postage is $19 for 12 fittings from Aquatuning.

McMaster and Grainger only has the copper pipes for good prices. The chromed ones are stupidly expensive. Mandrix found some chromed covered copper pipes at Home Depot for just $7 per 20 inches. Today I found some Faucet Supply Line which are Chromed covered copper pipes as well for $8 per 30 inches. They come in 1/2" and 3/8" flavors.

I am not going the Koolance route for fittings. I will need 12 fittings and that's $120. There's no way I can afford that.

BTW if you're doing 10mm pipes, you may as well just get the Bitspower multilink adapters which are just $11 a pair at Performance-PCs.com. I think that comes out a few dollars cheaper after shipping costs? Nevermind, BP multilink are for 12mm pipes.

The Koolance fittings aren't a one time use.
The ferrules are. You can buy the ferrules at a hardware store.

Wasn't too bad. One 52* bend and one 90. Bend radius for the 90 was 1-1/4".
Had to really crank down on the fittings. No kinks, though.

Does anybody know, where I can buy tubes and fittings in Canada?

Thanks, guys. Got a long way to go, though!

As Krusher33 pointed out, the 3/8" chromed faucet tubing is readily available at Lowes as well as Home Depot.
It works out to around $2.00 or so per foot, but at least it's very easy to find. Also for those using the Koolance fittings, Lowes carries the 3/8" pipe ferrule replacements, $1.76 x3, so no need to order those online as those should work.
Also brass and SS faucet tubing is available.
