    I hear of a lot of different methods but this works well. No presoaking or big steamers required.

    Nice. I do the same except with flexible hose, and pre-soak, and bugger steamer.....oops. Good set up.

    That's an amazing idea! How long do you generally need to apply the steam before bending into place?

    Once the steam gets going, the general rule of thumb, one hour per inch of thickness.
