That process is kinda labor-intensive, I think I will stick to my JD2 Mod 3, it's a lot faster, and I'm not always that patient. I do like his choice of "HOTROD" though.

Excuse the state of my workshop, the tube is 3 lengths of 1/2" tube 1/8" wall thickness. The ends are welded together then heated up and twisted gradually working from one end to the other. I use kiln dried silver sand which is about as fine as you can get, when its bone dry you can pour it into the tube like water. I just tap the bottom of the tube on the floor to tamp it down.

Hey Beatamax,

What are you making out of all of that twisted tubing?

Its eventually going to be for a rigid chopper frame but i've got a couple of other projects to finish first and I need to get better at brazing.
