Anyone have an idea how to bend a 1/4' diameter brass or copper tube into a "U' shape without collapsing the side walls and pinching the tube? .. The tube is only 6 inches long to begin with.
BTW) I have tried taping the ends and packing it with salt prior to bending it and that did not work... perhaps I need to pack the salt in it tighter.
