Bending tube and bar.

Recommended Posts

That IS NOT a complete weld on two ends. You must leave room for moisture vapor (when heating) or any pressure to escape.

Sand does work to support the tubing walls as it is being bent. Also helps to fill, then tamp or pack the sand down then top it off again.

There are lots of ways to bend ROUND tubing that don't involve sad, heat or special dies but I'll only confuse you if I drop tips on you and it turns out it won't make the kind of bends you need. At least post the link.
