Had to do some 22mm today - boy does it need some welly.
Someone (Andrew G IIRC) mentioned something about annealing pipe before bending.
Question - given half-hard tube is made thinner because it's half hard, are there any implications in annealing cooper and leaving it soft?
Common sense says don't soften it where a compression fitting is going - but apart from that, is it a problem?
Whilst I *can* bend half-hard (as long as the pipe bender doesn't slip out of the B&D Workmate and clang me in the nuts as I sit astride it to get some purchase) there are a couple of places that being able to slip a pipe spring in and give it a tweak in situ could be handy....
