Need more help on this. Previously I posted a thread asking for ideas for bending small diameter tube. I am on my last piece of scrap chain stay and need to come up with a solution
Radius of bend is about a half of an inch. Tube is squished to a dimension of 26 x 7 mm. The bend is to turn the tube correctly towards the rear dropout.
Shoving rods in the tube and I can't remove them as they get stuck at the bend. Nothing in the tube and it crimps.
Thought of using some mild steel rods of very small diameter in hopes of making them easier to remove, but this is last shot at it with "free" tube and want some more ideas.
