Re: I strongly doubt this will work for the tiny tubing I plan to use...
How about a section of steel wire through the tube while bending?
...a single grain of sand would be too large to fit inside tubes this size. And I am not sure they make tube flaring kits for brass tubes this small....
put tape on 1 end, fill tube with sand, tape close other end of tube & start bending. check hardware store for small pipe flaring kit to flare end of pipe.
Can anyone recommend an online tutorial for bending tiny diameter brass tubing (without the tubes crimping) and introducing a flare into the open end, to replicate piping on ship's funnels in 1/700 scale?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
