You might be a strong man that can bend iron bars, but are you gentle enough to bend soft tubing? Even if you’re careful, it’s all too easy to kink soft tube, and once you do that you can’t bend it back. Spring tubing benders allow you to put complex curves into brass, copper, and soft metal tubing without worrying about kinks.
Choose a spring just bigger than your pipe, and slide it over your tubing. The spring walls will prevent the tubing walls from kinking out. You can even take it further and put one spring bender on the outside and another on the inside if you have a particularly delicate bend. After bending, just remove the benders, and you’ve got that new waterline for your icemaker or fountain.
You can get them in a variety of shapes and sizes, and pricing varies. Street pricing on a set of six by General Tools is $9.
