Could try using something like this. It doesn't look like a very tight bend.

I used to bend Copper, Brass and Stainless Steel tubing for Industrial Sterilizers (SO many years ago) and the methods listed are legit.

In regards to buying tools from Harbor Freight, you get what you pay for. With HF, usually less.

Build: Z390 ACE
Core i9-9900K OC 5 GHz, MSI Z390 ACE Mobo, AMD Radeon VII GPU OC 2K MHz
Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB 3200 RAM, Phanteks Enthoo Pro M SE.
EKWB Z390 ACE Monoblock, Bykski Radeon VII GPU w/b, 2x EKWB 140 Revo D5 Pump & Res.
Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 LT USB Fan-Controller, Quadro, Vision Touch and 'High Flow' Sensor.

For hard metal tube bending its normally copper rather than brass tube that is used as brass is normally too stiff and brittle. I think when bending brass you need to anneal it beforehand which adds to the complexity a lot.
