Default Re: how do i bend steel tubing at home?

Make sure the sand is super dry before you pack the tubes and don't seal the tube completely. You need to leave a slight leak so that when you heat the tube, the air inside can escape as pressure inside the tube rises from the heat. Wet sand will steam and cause the same problem if you don't allow the tube to breathe.
