so can anyone tell me what temprature to use to make the plastic pliable? I gather it varies as to what kind of pipe you're using but somewhere over 200 F?

i think you have to play around with the temperatures, and levels of the oil, as well as how hard you push.

Hope you can figure it out.

Sorry, Waterboy flashback. Anyway I heard boiling water works too, that would take all the guess work out of oil temp. Just bring to a boil, set the pipe in for a few seconds and that should soften it up. Dunno how flexible it'll get but you can give it a shot and find out. Can't really make a big mess with just water!

Turning on a stove burner to high
and slowly rotating the end of the pipe over it works.
