Default Re: How can I bend 1" tubing?

What radius? If you can get away with a large radius, you can just bend it by hand (slowly) around something large and round. I bent the 1' x .049" top tube on my bike using two 18" particle board discs routed to form a half round. See pic. I also used this to bend the chainstays. Even on the .035 wall chainstays I didn't get any wrinkling.
