Got a bad batch of chrome tubing , the chrome kept cracking when I bent it so I decided to change to acrylic. Unfortunately I am out about $700 worth of chrome compression fittings and about 200 worth of chrome tubing OH WELL

A good piece of 3/4 melamine (36"X36") , a square , a fine tip felt pen and accurate base line.
I found that you can bent the tubing to all sorts of radiuses ,without using jigs, if you mark your bend distances on the melamine (say 3" inside to out side)Just be careful to work your bends from the middle of the run to the end of the run , It is a real s.o.b. to pull the silicone tube out of 2 90 degree bends

Plus being in the piping trades for over 40 years really helps

It looks amazing. For some reason it reminds me of a Brewery.

I vote for beer colored liquid running through those pipes.
