I acknowledge with thanks Steerpike's tip about caustic soda a few moons ago, as well as my thanks to Jacques (alternativeroute) who kindly obliged with a replacement SME coupler for this job.

That pipe bender look like an invaluable tool...

Hehe

It's cheep - only ZAR140 from Adendorff. There's a slight but not serious problem with the bender - it's imperial.

3/8th" = +-10mm so it is adviseable to reduce o/d a little before bending 10mm aluminium pipe.
