SUP­PLIER www.aquatun­ USE­FUL FOR Bend­ing acrylic sheet and tub­ing If you al­ready own a heat gun for paint strip­ping, you can cross this item off your list as they’re the same. In the PC modding world, there are two uses for heat guns, both of which in­volve bend­ing acrylic by heat­ing it up so that it be­comes pli­able. The first method is to bend acrylic sheet, which re­quires a good ten min­utes of side­ways heat­ing ac­tion along the line you need to bend, as well as the use of a bend­ing jig to ob­tain sharp bends. The next method is used for acrylic or PETG rigid wa­ter-cool­ing tub­ing. The tub­ing needs to be heated in or­der to be bent, us­ing any of the nu­mer­ous bend­ing tools and kits avail­able from www.wa­ter­coolin­ Heat up the tub­ing grad­u­ally, as it’s very easy for bub­bles to form in­side it if it’s heated too quickly.
