HOW ARE THESE MADE

HOW ARE THESE MADE

(OP)
I am assuming from this that this is a standard size pipe of some sort, and then it is machined and then bent??I am trying to make this in a 1/4" hose barb, what size stock would I use I cant seem to find a pipe that works for the inner and outer barb dimensions of arounf .119" id and around 0.285" od

RE: HOW ARE THESE MADE

Much depends on the material. Do you know the material? It appears to be machined, then bent. You may have to go with .312 od. Contact a bender, This will be the tough part. Machining should be straight forward unless you cave to stick with a crazy cost goal.

RE: HOW ARE THESE MADE

We make something very similar, but it is a 3 stage operation.
Turn 1st end and part of the tube
Form the bend in a pipe bender
Trim part to final length
