I bent pipe by annealing it first, then filling with dry sand and brazing on end caps, that keeps the pipe from crushing, then bend on a jig, take of the end caps and viola.

You need a pipe bender ;)

Unless you're bending tube.... there is a difference ;)

OR, you can make a jig.

Here's an instructable on tube bending with a home made jig ;)
