    This attachment will heat 360% allowing you to heat PVC conduit or any other plastic small diameter pipe, heating evenly / quickly.

    Cut that shape of the heat gun into the aluminium pipe.
    It was a tight fit.
    If you also look there is a other section of pipe in that also.

    Today I tried heating and bending high pressure poly pipe with this.
    And as you can see that have put a 90% bend on it using a spring on the in side to keep it’s shape.
    This took as long as it would as if you were heating PVC pipe.
    In the process of making a larger one that will be able to heat PVC, plastic or poly pipe 4inches in size any wall thickness.
