Video Workshop Tip: Bending Brass Tubes

Video Workshop Tip: Bending Brass Tubes

If you have built a model airplane or two and have tried to bend the brass tubes for the fuel tank by hand, you are sure to have said to yourself, “there has to be a better way.” The main fuel line is straight and so no bends are required, but for the vent tube to work properly, you have to get the tube bent 90 degrees. If you aren’t careful you will kink the tube and will have to try again. What’s the better way?
