Greetings All:

I feel like a stranger in these parts it's been so long since I've posted.
School's over and brew season is slowing down so I hope to get back to
posting with some degree of regularity.

Hugh Bynum mentioned tubing benders as a way to bend copper. They do the
trick. But you can also been copper fairly easily by bending it around
something that's already round, like a tree limb! The key is to hold the
tubing firmly to the surface as you bend. I use a nail that's bent over
in a right angle so that the tail of the "L" is a little more than 3/8"
above the surface of the limb.

Speaking of strangers, whatever happened to that Darryl Richman/Poorman
feller??
