Good work,it threw me for the first couple of bends but it was soon worked out.

How did you get the mandrel stuck?!?

Pretty sure if you try to use that 360 jig you'll figure out pretty quick how you can get a mandrel stuck.

lol

I had a quick play with it,didnt find it any harder to use than the rest,certainly no sticking.

Sure looks to me that as soon as you turn more than 180 degrees around it it just isn't going to be able to come out once the tube cools.

Which is why I can't see a usefulness for it over using the 180 or other mandrels. It might have been neat if it was a spiral instead of a circle so you could twist it out and create a loop-de-loo.

It more for use with multiple bends in a run,if making a jig for a whole length is a requirement.
Thats my understanding of it.

My 360 is going on a key ring

I could see how it would be useful for that. And since it is 360 you could add in really any other angle easily

All this feedback about the mandrels is awesome and very helpful! Can't wait to get my set so I can try out what you guys are describing.

RE: Europe

I spoke with Aquatuning via e-mail and OCUK...
Appears they will stock kits sometime in next month or 2.

Which seems logical to me as I would presume they would have to wait for American market to get first product supply.

Just had a bit of a revelation regarding the 360 mandrel,I now use it to form the bends by rolling it round the mandrel im working on..good results so far!

Do you mean that your rolling the 360 around another mandrel ( e.g.90 degree) with the tube in the 90 degree?

Also Belated Happy New Year.
