When you say eventually the rubber will soften, how long is that? how much does it take for PVC to soften at 510C? im asking cause my 1st try failed with breaking the plastic in various places, both by the clamps I used (cause I didnt have a smaller pipe to fit in) and my incompetence to handle a 5 foot and 2.5" diameter pipe (while sitting in a nice and cosy armchair :-P).

Hmmm, sorry to hear that the pipe broke. For it to have broken I imagine that you might have clamped it too hard before it had completely softened. The softening takes 5-10 min and is a pretty obvious change in the physical properties of the material. At that point clamping should bend it, but not break it. Are you sure you have PVC and not ABS? ABS is usually black and is much more brittle than PVC which is usually white. Try again with the smaller pipe. And make sure that you are in a well ventilated area. Might want to move that comfy chair outside :)

wat the hell is tenia solium?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pork_tapeworm

Taenia solium
, also called the pork tapeworm, is a cyclophyllid cestode in the family Taeniidae. It infects pigs and humans in Asia, Africa, South America, parts of Southern Europe, and pockets of North America. Like all cyclophyllid cestodes, T. solium has four suckers on its scolex ("head"). T. solium also has two rows of hooks.

Great Editing!
I saw one that used several different sizes melted together to create a HUGE flange at the end.
