Here, I show a quick and dirty method to bend aluminum tubing. I am documenting how I built a new bow rail for my sailboat.

Step 1: Build the jig

Here, I trace the curve that I want on some scrap lumber. This scrap will be used to build the bending jig. I'm just using a couple of old 2x4's. Your wood should be somewhat thicker than the diameter of the tube you wish to bend.
<p>That liquid foam no more gaps stuff in a spray pack works well too. It dries real quick &amp; my aluminum pipes don't flatten/kink when I bend them. if you need to get rid of the foam when your done bending,,,then just start pouring small amounts of acetone in one end &amp; it will eventually dissolve.</p>
if you fill the conduit with sand it will not kink
Fill it with sand and close both ends (corks do a great job here). It has always worked perfectly for me.
+1 on filling with sand-it appears in old school DIY magazines I have.
Thanks, this was very helpful!
Here is another tip that may help you. Pack the tube with sand before starting the bend. This provides some support from inside and helps prevent it collapsing. One other thing I dont think that trailer is large enough to carry a compac 16 !
Hey.. I LOVE your boat. I built my own sail boat. Love sailing and boat building...I also love to Cycle... I am in the process of making a Bicycle trailer and needed to bend some conduit. Can't see buying a conduit bender to use only once..Thanks for this info..Chief Redelk

I have been looking for alternatives to buying conduit benders (they are not cheap...and I am...lol).&nbsp; Would doing a jig like this, but for a small 3 or 4 inch radius work for 1/2&quot; conduit? or would it kink?<br />
I use a spring to bent PVC Conduit. For long pipes I attach a rope on the one end and shove it down the pvc until it is in place. My spring was inexpensive. Hope this helps.
&nbsp;I think it should work ok.<br /> <br /> Just pull very hard and go slow. You keep the conduit very tight against the jig.<br />
&nbsp;I was thinking if it does kink, to try and make a groove in the edge of the half circle part to match the conduit (thinking to maybe mount the full circle into the drill press and use it as a makeshift lathe)

I bend metal with my hands.
yeah? well I do it with my mind...
So? ... I can do it without my mind
Well, it can bend itself without me.....
its so easy, i make someone else do it for me..
you are all bending it the easy way, tubing was just flat strips of sheet metal before I started bending it into cylinders...<br>
it was so easy...ilet u do it ...(nothing personal^, just goes wid flow)
If you are super concerned with getting a smooth rail, fill the rail with sand and close both ends. When you bend the tube it won't kink or deform.
I am from England, I have ordered a bag from brandbagsales.com. When I receive the product. I find it is not the color I like.They change the bag for me immediately for free. The service is very good.
I have had a little experience bending tubing, as I was a band director who &quot;dabbled&quot; in instrument making in my early years. <br><br>I successfully bent brass tubing using molten lead (which I reheated and removed later) inside the tubing. If you are not trying a real tight curve, then this should keep kinks from forming.<br><br>Another way I have seen, but never tried, is to freeze water in the tubes, and then bend them. (Saw this on T.V.) I imagine you could place your pipe into a freezer, as long as it will fit.<br>

This week, the makers of Back To The Future kicked off celebrations marking the 25th anniversary of the release of the original movie starring Michael J. Fox. In the same week, an Irish independent filmmaker has gone public with what he says is footage of a time traveller caught walking through a scene on a recent DVD release of Charlie Chaplin's 1928 film, The Circus. &quot;I believe I'm the first person to find something quite unusual from a bit of film footage from 1928,&quot; Clarke said. The scene can be found in the extras menu in Documents, under The Hollywood Premiere. <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">Discount UGG Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots On Sale</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Classic Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">Buy UGG Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Womens Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots Clearance</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGGS For Cheap</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Outlet</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG For Sale</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGGS</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots Outlet</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">Cheap UGG Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots For Cheap</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Outlet Store</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots UK</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots USA</a> <br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots De</a><br><a href="http://www.byuggboots.com/">UGG Boots Noway</a><br>The problem with a deal that establishes use of low-enriched Iranian uranium is that it &quot;would provide Iran the international legitimization that it has long sought for its uranium enrichment program,&quot; ISIS said. &quot;With such legitimization, Iran would face few objections to perfecting and enlarging&quot; its so-called breakout capability to quickly fabricate an actual atomic weapon with the complicated centrifuges it uses for enrichment.<br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">Discount UGG Boots</a><br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots On Sale</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Classic Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">Buy UGG Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Womens Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Outlet</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG For Sale</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGGS</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots Outlet</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">Cheap UGG Boots</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots For Cheap</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Outlet Store</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots UK</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots USA</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots NL</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots FR</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots De</a> <br><a href="http://www.sexybootsshop.com/">UGG Boots Noway</a>

I want to make a bicycle handlebar like the one shown in this pic. Would this be a good technique to do it with? Can anyone suggest what thickness of aluminum to use? Thanks, in advance
One thing you might want to try to do is to fill it with something.&nbsp; Brass instrument companies do this to prevent collapsing the tube.&nbsp; They use a bees wax and tar mixture i am sure you can find a recipe online for it.&nbsp; But at this point you may just want to do what another person posted which is just cut another pair of drop handle bars.<br />
I recently watched an episode of 'Factory Made' on the Science channel. They made the bends in a brass trombone by filling the brass tube with liquid and freezing it. The ice core kept the tube from collapsing. I don't know if this would work in this case since more force would be required to make the bend than is needed for the brass tube.
Why not try something more different? like go for a shape that no one else has! and show off your coolness!<br />
Probably easier to find a set of old drop bars and apply a hacksaw.&nbsp; They won't look exactly like this, but bending tube to that shape, especially with this method, seems like it could be tricky.&nbsp; <br />
<br/>I'd actually be - hmmmmm a bit skeptical about the idea of &quot;knocking out&quot; some really clever aluminum handle bars.<br/><br/>It's not that one ought not take on challenges, and one ought to never discourage others from doing so either.<br/><br/>But - the big but... light weight high strength handlebars, have to be made from very clean and high quality primary (new) alloys, and they have to be heat treated and aged, at various stages of their production, and they have to be formed on really nice dies, and machinery....<br/><br/>These may on fact, be &quot;hydroformed&quot;... a clever method of internally expanding the tube, by hydraulic pressure alone, while the tube is simultaneously compressed into bending dies.<br/><br/>It's very clever, but in the commercial sense, it may in fact be almost impossible to achieve these bends, the quality of finish and the metalurgical properties, to be on par, with a commercially made set of handle bars.<br/><br/>And handle bars, are not the kind of thing I want to have suddenly fail, at an inopportune moment.<br/><br/>Honestly - I'd rather go and buy a commercially made, reputable product.<br/><br/>But just because I state my preferences, doesn't mean that you ought not - either explore the process, or even giving it a go.<br/><br/>You may in fact be able to make as good as or better than, to your own specifications....<br/><br/>But - do your research, approach the project in a professional and methodical manner, and then evaluate the feasability of proceeding, after your research has revealed the process's and tools needed to make the product your require.<br/><br/>Actually here is the &quot;exact&quot; video on the subject - testing and hydroforming of handlebars.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV3Pg-JyLrk&amp;feature=related">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV3Pg-JyLrk&amp;feature=related</a><br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://video.google.com.au/videoplay?docid=-6977966166049497743&amp;q=hydroforming&amp;ei=KyiGSPbNIIuS4wKcpezEAg&amp;hl=en">http://video.google.com.au/videoplay?docid=-6977966166049497743&amp;q=hydroforming&amp;ei=KyiGSPbNIIuS4wKcpezEAg&amp;hl=en</a> <br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV3Pg-JyLrk&amp;feature=related">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fV3Pg-JyLrk&amp;feature=related</a><br/>
It would definitely be a cost-effective way to do it, but beware about getting enough force to make the bends out by the grips. You'll have to bend with a longer tube and then cut to length for sure. Also, getting that compound bend (down and then real near to it, towards you), will require careful bracing when you build your jig. I learned that the hard way when I was bending conduit to run electricity to my swamp cooler and had to make some funky bends like that. I did the actual bending a different way, but I found I had to build a bracing jig all around the bend I had just made and then begin my next bend. It was the only way to keep the angle inact, and have a stable force to bend against. As for aluminum thickness, unless your old handlebars have collapsed in some way, use that thickness. Otherwise, I would use electrical conduit. It's cheap, handy, and relatively easy to bend. I wouldn't use it for apehangers or if I was going to put a lot of weight on my hands while I ride, but for that style, conduit should be fine.
Making some custom handlebars for my road bicycle... Would there be any advantage to using BOTH sand and water inside the tube?
<br/>I am interested in doing some bends in steel tubing, done it commercially, and also on roll forming mills etc., <br/><br/>The point I raise is that I want to do my own work to my own specs, and people generally will not allow one to use their jillion dollar computer bending machine - for exhaust pipes.. etc...<br/><br/>And I want to do it without coughing up large sums of money for the jigs and press etc.<br/><br/>The (don't remember the word/s) best bit to want or need is the STEEL forming dies, for the actual tube diameter....<br/><br/>These in themselves's cost a bit, special NON stock sizes or radii - Uggghhh - hard to justify the HUGE cost for a limited use or &quot;beginning&quot; work shop.<br/><br/>Just thought of something.... Make up the wooden pattern, cleverly made, and then cast it up at a foundry, or in ones own foundry... : )<br/><br/>Really nice polished forming dies ARE very sexy....<br/><br/>Not so durable - but quite reasonable to make and use, aluminium forming dies...... <br/><br/>Easy to machine and profile / dress with hand tools.<br/><br/>Wooden dies ARE great, simple, easy to machine, good for limited run jobs...<br/><br/>Light - easy to handle etc..<br/><br/>But I kind of like hydraulic driven ram and dies...., even a machine driven pump would be good... or even the one handed pumping..<br/><br/>Gives direct control of the individual process's.<br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://users.adelphia.net/~kimmike89/Indy.jpg">http://users.adelphia.net/~kimmike89/Indy.jpg</a><br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://ruztertrike.blogspot.com/2006/02/tube-bending-jig.html">http://ruztertrike.blogspot.com/2006/02/tube-bending-jig.html</a><br/><br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://home.wanadoo.nl/jhm.vangastel/Astronomy/50cmscope/bending.htm">http://home.wanadoo.nl/jhm.vangastel/Astronomy/50cmscope/bending.htm</a><br/><br/>
Great instructable! I have two questions though: I am looking at making mtb bars, out of steel preferably, and I'm wondering if a) it would be possible to bend steel using this method, and b) would it be possible to make a jig that would allow the middle section of the handlebars straight for ease when fitting it onto the stem (sort of like <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.davesmotors.com/store/product905.html">these</a> )?<br/>
What is the max size of pipe(diameter) I'm able to bend it over the jig?
Without heat? I guess that depends on how sturdy your jig mount is, how strong you are, and how thick the walls on your chosen tubing are. Of course, if you get some tubing home and find you can't bend it, heat with a propane torch (don't light your jig on fire) and then bend. Make sure you evenly heat everything that you want to have bent evenly, and the sky's really the limit.
Not sure. I used 3/4 inch tubing. I would guess that as long as the jig is bigger that you would be ok. Honestly, this was a one off kind of thing (I was simply making a new bow rail). I am very surprised at the amount of discussion.
I've seen how trumpet guys do it - they fill it with water and then freeze it. Problem is, how would you freeze it unless it's winter outside. Any how, that's another alternative if you're looking for one.
good idea. When its not winter (or if you're in Florida like me) I bet you could dump some dry ice on it and wrap it in visqueen or a similar plastic for a few minutes.
Why would you want to fill it with anything at all? wouldnt that just make it harder to bend?
Because when you bend it, the "outside" (blue line) of the curve has to be longer than the "inside" (green line). If you don't fill it, it will of natural reason deform in the profile (red circles) when you bend it... This may cause collapse, which is what I THINK is what they mean by kink. Illustration 1 is of a tube bent with something filling the inside of the tube, to force a constant volume, and thereby force the tube to stay in shape. illustration 2 is of the tube without filling. Notice the red profile cut half-way. Hope that helps :)
Thanks a lot that makes more sence now. and it is kink i think.
I just wanted to make a clarification on here. The trumpet guys don't use water because it freezes into ice and isn't bendable. Also pure water expands when it freezes and can crack or break tubing when it freezes. They use a soap/water mixture because it can still bend. And doesn't expand as much.
you can bend it just as effectively by packing the aluminum tubing with sand tightly packed into the inside of the tubing, then do the rest as the instructions say
How about just going and buying the right size conduit bender?
Conduit benders are fixed-radius, but with the wood form it can be any radius you want, even varying radius.
a conduit bender bends pipe. While you can get aluminum pipe, this how-to talks about bending tubing. If you were to attempt to bend tubing in a pipe bender, you would end up putting a serious kink in the tubing - rendering it unattractive, and useless But, doing this rail WITH conduit, and the conduit bender, might be a viable alternative. Polish it up with 2-3 grades of emery cloth, and it could look quite attractive
