    One thing I've found hard to find out and am still looking for info on is finding what point to go off of from a bend in tubing, since there is no edge, where do you measure from?

    You can use the edge of a bending die as your mark.

    If you bend your own tubing, mark where the die edge is at the start, and you'll have a reference point. I hope that helps you with your question.
    Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.

    Ron Covell has an excellent video on working with tubing - goes into how to accurately use a tube bender. One thing he doesn't mention though if you change material, or even supplier, the spring back on tubing might change. Do a practice bend with each lot and keep notes.

    I believe you can actually rent Covell's videos on some web sites.

    Along with a lot of other dvd's on stuff, After watching a couple of idiots with a case of beer, a vid camera,a pencil and a cardboard box for drawing on. With the air compressor running as background music and the sunshine washing out picture, when they point the camera in the direction of the windows and open garage door. You will be glad you rented some and did not spend $89.00 on them.
    But it is a good deal, Just read all the reviews as they tell the truth
