Hey folks just saw this cool set off tubing benders at canadian tire.
Anyhow The sizes are perfect , 1/4, 5/16 and 3/8. I just made a 1/2 inch j Pipe for my 15 gallon using standard Lfs piping that costs about 1$ for 3ft.
I used a heat gun to soften the pipe then bend it hold it for a minute to cool and voila it's done. I took my less than 5 mins to do a J pipe and a nice radiused 90 bend. Let it cool and you could do a 2nd to make a lily pipe. Wow.
Best of all 10.49 canadian!!
