    reason i ask, is that i found a local place to get 12mm hard acrylic tube, but its actually larger and doesnt fit BP fittings. Your magic ones however may work perfectly

    Does this mean I can just get some copper tube and a bender at bunnings and use that instead of plastic crap for my next build? :D

    I'd guess it's precisely 12.7mm in that case - is it a chain store I can buy some at to test? Or if you want to test it for us and post results I can discount you a 4-pack of fittings or something?

    Yes sir it means that exactly :) might be cheaper to get the pipe bender on eBay, I think I paid $50 but never know - bunnings could have them!

    We wouldn't have you any other way :)

    Bunnings Team Member here to save the day. Yes we do stock pipe benders. The 1/2 inch bender is around $39 with the 3/4 (19mm) bender at $52.

    The links on "Beginners guide to copper" and "Rocketscience" both have spaces in the HTML links. You have to add "-", "_" or put no space inbetween for the links to work.

    Edit: I think I just broke it trying to find what the links are meant to be :/

    Haha yeah mate, site isnt officially launched yet - just to you buggers :) The guide is nearly finished and at rocketscience.mx/beginners-guide/ but I wont update the link until its complete.

    Interesting that you've been able to 508 it, though! Bravo! :) Did you run a script against it looking for permutations or just manually type? I'm curious to figure out how you were able to do it so I can talk to my host and stop it happening in future!

    Just manually typing in different pages eg.
    Code:
    http://www.rocketscience.mx/box_test
    http://www.rocketscience.mx/box-test
    http://www.rocketscience.mx/boxtest
    On the last one is when it first started and now I can't access the site at all. My bad.

    All good mate, went through logs and it was just a coincidence - nothing you did :) Finished the first run of the beginners guide to, keen to hear what you think.

    Looks amazing man, and I think I will be keen to give it a go. Definitely more work then the acrylic pipe - but much better looking.

    so - over a month and no posts in the thread?

    How has the rig been holding up?

    How are the fittings going?

    Hey fellas :) The PC is going great, honestly better than I expected so no complaints! The fittings are going well, I've got a worklog started (but not posted yet) that I'll have up this week so looking forward to getting you guys involved in that.

    Otherwise have been keeping busy with the motorbike, bowling and getting ready for the wedding in March.

    Oh it's on the cards, mate, believe me! :) Scratch build will be my next worklog after the fittings for sure, I've been collecting masses of photos of different types of builds and machines that inspire me. Really can't wait to start on something :)

    Yeah man - what about one built into a desk! I saw a BEAUTIFUL one with custom Res's - I will edit the post when I find it...

    edit - here it is

    Wicked - I really love the idea of a copper pipe build, but I don't have the time or the skills to pull it off..
