    This pic is a good example of why I didn't snug my outside wall. I pushed an extra foot or so inside to make my bend, then pushed back out.
    That rev attachment would've been great for that outside bend!

    Me too.

    Nice bends, though. The tubing bender is a nice tool.

    Looks good. I like your vac gauge and hose set up.
    I hate tubing and tubing benders. I use hard drawn and strut even on most of my resi jobs.
