|Setting Bends in Plastic Tubing
While helping a friend tube up his busker, we found some of the tubing runs
interfering with the drive wheels because of the pipe layout.
A quick fix was obtained by bending an elbow in the tubes. A light duty extension
spring was inserted to prevent the tubing from collapsing, heating the tubing
over a candle flame until soft, then bent and held until cool. The
spring was then removed and the tube trimmed to length.
