Berd Air Tube Bender & Drilling Jig

Introduction: Berd Air Tube Bender & Drilling Jig

About: Love 3d printing

This is my own design of a berd air bending and drilling jig, I have included several pictures to show how it is used,The holes in the tube are at 45 degrees the reason for this was because I found the normal straight drilled tubes didn't cool fine points to well and the nozzle heat would spoil the finish,The aluminium tube used was K & S 8101 Round Aluminium Tube (Pack of 3) 3/32" Dia x0.014" Wall and can be found here
