Welcome to Neon Basics: A site built to help provide the novice with the knowledge to begin the craft of NEON Tubebending...
There 6 basic bends that you will need to master to become a tubebender.
#1.THE RIGHT -ANGLE BEND
The key to making any bend is to heat enough glass to make the bend, and avoid kinking the glass while bending.
You will need to mark the glass 2x the diameter,
EX: If you are using 15mm glass, from the center of the bend you will mark 15mm to the right, and 15mm to the left. The section you are heating should equal 30mm.
