      Im a begining hobbyist jewelry maker. I havent figured out how to bend tubing without causing the tube to collape flat in the middle. Im not talking about a sharp bend. No more than say 10 degrees. Just enough to bow a bit so that it follows the natural bow of the chain of cord which I want to pass through it. Any help on this would be appreciated!

      The way I bend brass tubing is to fill it with a low-temperature melting metal, such as cerrobend, and then to bend the tube, then throw it into boiling water to let the cerrobend melt and run out. Gluck.

      :this depends on what diameter pipe you are trying to bend, any thing up to 1/2 you can use soft copper pipe which bends easily. Im a begining hobbyist jewelry maker.
