Want to put a 3 1/4" radius bend in 1" tubeing, just past 90 degrees. Understand that there may be a low temp. metal the tube can be filled with, to prevent distortion. Trying to find out what it is, if not we'll give sand bending a try.

Thanks.......

It melts around 160 so you can melt it with hot water.

After you use it you can melt it out into a tub and save it to use again.

Some metal shops may have it also under different names, but it is usually just a mixture of bismuth metal and some other types.

HTH,
