Acrylic pipebending 101 - Page 257

So I just received 8532K13 3/8 1/2 tubing from mcmaster to practice on. I kinda like the look over E22. thinking.gif Anyone want to trade a handful of C47's? tongue.gif

I recently picked up 3/4 od 1/2 id acrylic and I figured i'd mess around and see how it bent. It bends pretty easy but i dunno if i tapped it wrong. The bitspower fitting I bought seemed snug but the easy came loose. I also don't know since it wasn't a straight cut if that had anything to do with it. It looks pretty sweet, but i don't know if I am going to fully commit and do threaded acrylic.

These fat acrylic pipes look so bad ass. thumb.gif
Never understood why they make the standard ones so thin.

Do you have a comparison pic

Are you asking me? If you are, no I don't have a comparison picture. This is the first time I've messed with acrylic tubing.

I tapped the acrylic tube to accept 1/4 threads and I used a male to male adapter

They look pretty awful on a MATX or ITX board. The smaller tubing allows for people to see the waterblock and more of the board for those. Larger diameter on ATX and above doesn't look out of place.
