I've found that a tubing bender from and automotive supply store does
real well with manipulating tubung. It is an item that costs about $2.50
and is small - fitting into the hand nicely.  It has a radius bend with
a tine that holds the tubing in place while pressure is applied. It
makes uniform bends without kinking.
