I need to bend a stainless dip tube from a corny to create a racking cane for my conical (it's set up for racking by ball lock co2 pressure, but the valve is a gallon or so above the bottom of the conical). I can't screw it up and it's going to be a tight bend. Any suggestions?
I was hoping someone had a portable bender I could borrow.

You might try an auto repair or fabrication shop.  They use tubing benders to make brake lines, fuel lines, etc. You might be able to trade a little work for a little beer.

it's not gonna work anyhow. The fitting is ball lock, but it's connected to a really small compression fitting. The tubing is too large in diameter. time to find some really small tubing or deal with a gallon loss.
