post #2551 of 4504
In metals it is all about the breaking of the grains until finally those small grains cause it to break. These grains can be 'reset' (called recrystallization?) by the application of heat so that you can start the process again. It is interesting to note that the temperature that this recrystallization occurs in lead (Pb) is about room temperature. Try flexing lead back and forth until it breaks ... you can't do it.

Note ... the above is in relationship to METAL (or so I have been told) ... I have no idea if this applies to PETG, Acrylic, plastic, etc.

No matter which tubing I use, my hard and fast rule is one heating only per bend.

If you gaffe a bend toss the whole tube in a box and keep it for future use where a shorter run is required. Start with long runs first down to the shortest. Yes it seems wasteful, but eventually with that practice you should have a better understanding what is required.

So, Geno are you gonna tease us with some pics of the new Economy fittings? biggrin.gif

What a PITA the packaging process for the Ev2 fittings has been. All of the manufacturing and actual packages have been done for WEEKS. The fittings are even in the boxes and everything is ready to go...except the little printed plastic template slash directions card. The entire show has been on hold for a $0.20 plastic template because we could not find a shop that can index the printing and stamping accurately enough for the measurement marks on the template to be correct.

We think we have finally found a shop up to the task, (thankfully).

Not sure if I have mentioned it about the Ev2 fittings yet but the new design allows for an especially good fit on the tube (almost no wobble and very good holding power) by having several parts bags sized to fit a range of tube OD's. So the 13mm (1/2") fitting fits tube OD's from 11.8mm to 13.2mm and the 16mm (5/8") fitting fits tube OD's from 15.2mm to 16.2mm. So for the 13mm size that is a tube variance or range of almost 1.5mm and you still get best in class holding power on the tube.

And no lock collars =)

Pictures soon as there is one more "cool feature" I can't share just yet.

Thats very nice to hear, i want to use Glass tubes in my Rig, but the are only in exactly 13mm od avalible here in Germany. So its Perfect that the new Fittings will Support that.

Yes I am a bit excited about using them for glass as well. It is hard to design a true compression fitting that won't crack plastic tube, and even harder to do that for glass. I have a friend who bends glass tube for making neon signs and that idea of having bent glass tube in a rig has been in the back of my mind for years.

Of course in my build "daydreams" it is a tube within a tube setup where water runs through the inner tube and there is neon gas in the sealed outer tube and the neon lighting has that plasma lightning thing going on.

So may ideas, so little time.

Well, if things goes according to plane, if I can get to the finish line with a new sponsor I am talking to, I will do glass tubing in my next build - otherwise acrylic again. I already have the glass tubing for my next project, just need the 48 rigid tubing fittings LOL. That´s the issue with glass, you can only run straight pipes, so the amount of fittings is INSANE!


Geno, after the EV2, and now when the MMRS is launched, what is the next "step", or category you are going to explore? smile.gif Water blocks? biggrin.gif

Here is another Question from me. Do you plan to bring Monsoon Waterblocks and/or Cable Combs to the Market? I think that Cable Combs in the Monsoon finishes would be very nice.

Aquatuning carries Angled Glass Tubes, you should be able to get these in Sweden.

Doubtful on blocks. I have designed them before for other companies and it seems like you are always designing a new block for the latest card or motherboard. I do occasionally make myself or a buddy custom full coverage blocks...so if I did do a block that is the way I would go I think.

For now I am going to be focusing on my boat design =)

Not sure if I have ever showed you guys my pet project.
