Smoker, don't take this as criticism, just an honest question. And I'm fairly confident you've got a solid reason for this already, but what's up with the splice in that tube?

I see that you need an angle at that area, but maybe a bent tube is a better way to go? Of course, a solid, straight tube is best, but that's why I asked. Just curious.

I'm going to try to find a shop that can bend some steel tubes as close to this sample as possible. The idea is to get rid of the seam - using one tube, instead of 2 tubes.

I have a tubing bender, so I may try to bend a tube myself, but it will probably just waste money. I doubt I'll be able to bend the tubing without crimping it because it's fairly thin-walled. I'll try to pack the tubing with wet sand and tape off the ends, but I don't have a lot of confidence in that.

If I can find a shop that won't charge too much, I'll get 6 tubes bent. It's not going to be easy to index and cut the ends
the tube, so, I'll need extras.

Out of the shops you use and people you know to get all those sexy parts you have you have got to know someone who can bend tube. I'll be going to the manchineel shop tomorrow if you let me know the metal you're using they might have it in stock and be able to do it. I'd love to help out on this epic build. PM with the metal info and I see if they have it and can bend it.

Just learning as I go.

Still need to order the metal. Not yet sure whether it can be bent in 2 foot sections, or if I need to order 3 foot long tubes. Depends on the type of tube bender. Will need to call some bending shops to find out.

I need a 15.5 degree bend at 15 inches (or 9 inches) on a 24in x 7/8in OD x .058 wall 4130 normalized alloy steel tube.

The finished tubes will be about 19 inches.

If bending the tubes doesn' t come out good, I'll weld the tubes and smooth out the joint.

Crazy machine you got going there!

There should be no problem bending those tubes, unless you have a very specific radius in mind. but again people who do this for a living probably has a wide choice of dies. (i only have one pr dimension and that sucks)

I have enough tubing to try out my tube bender.

Plugging the ends of the tubing (for sand) is the problem. 7/8" OD and approx. 3/4" ID, wall thickness .058. There's not really anything there to make threads with a tap or die. Now looking at expansion plugs or wooden plugs. I don't have anything around here to use. Hopefully, I can find something better than duct tape.

If you lived just a little closer to Los Angeles, I might be excited.

I've got a crappy Harbor Freight hydraulic tubing bender, and I highly doubt I'll be able to do this job correctly.
