i have this white tubing, it was originally a very large hoop so i cut it down to make minis. i have been having problems making them though. am i doing something wrong? i have a 1/2 in connector and a 3/4 in connector. the 1/2 one is too small but it seems the 3/4 one is too large. this is really frustrating. All i want to do it hoop! lol. help?
ive set the hoop in boiling water trying to get the bigger one to go in. idk what to dooo
the 3/4 is the right size. cold, they are near impossible to connect. get a hair dryer, or boil a pot of water heat up one half the connector at a time. the heat softens the connector and helps considerably when pushing the hoop together. after you connect them give them a few good spins to make sure they take a circle shape.
Have fun girl i hope this helps!!
thanks so much! so i heat the connector, and not the tubing? lol i think ive been doing it backwards by heating the tubing instead. ahah. thank youuu:))!
you're welcome hun! :) yeah definitely the connector but you can heat the tubing up too, but i never really bother with it...unless it's super stubborn
ur right i read that wrong, it could be 5/8... You use the same size connector as tubing size :) as for heating the connector i've never heard of not heating it up. sounds tricky
actually, it really depends on the tubing. But thank you.
i'm not sure which kind of tubing you're working with but i'm glad it works for you! <3
the tubing says its 3/4 but i measured it & it appears to be slightly smaller.
thanks soo much ladies <3
