ok, so in this i am going for the 10/12mm i am looking for a tuber bender to bend the tubing at 90 degree angles. But not sure what a good one would be for 12mm. So i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on something i could use. i am going to practice a bit first before i actually go to purchase everything for my first loop.

This kit from ThermalTake looks like it might work. It's a bit pricy, but it looks to be very good quality. 


Always remember the 80/80 rule of project management. That is, the first 80% of the project takes 80% of the time, and the last 20% of the project takes the other 80% of the time.

price seems fine, spending about 600 dollars on water cooling anyways. it does work with 12mm tubing? just to make sure

The kit seems to be specifically designed for 12mm tubing (all of the machined parts actually have a little '12mm' symbol screenprinted on them), so you shouldn't encounter any problems.

i might try it by eye first, if i end up having trouble, i will do it with a bender. since i want to use petg and not PMMA, but the kit comes with PMMA so i will just use the acrylic to practice with

I bought the Thermaltake kit for the 16mm OD tubing.  As a quick and dirty kit review, the bending blocks are aluminum and nicely made.  The tubing cutter is all metal and has some really nice weight to it and is super easy to use.  That red deburing tool, absolute shit.  You can't put a smooth edge on the tubing to save your soul.

i bend it by eye and if its slightly out i leave the piece on my desk next time when i heat up a new piece i put it next to the old one as i bend it that way i can by eye see how much i was roughly out. usually get it first time after a while or second time.

it's useful when you have more than one bend to do on a piece.
