You have to bend it around a large enough form AND get a pipe bender for brake/fuel lines for automotive use to make the tight bends. I used a paint can as the form. I placed the paint can on the floor, stepped on the end of the tube, and started to bend the initial coil. After that you just hold the end of the tube tightly to the paint can, and start spinning the paint can, keeping constant pressure on the copper with your foot holding it in place and spinning the paint can towards your foot (thats holding the copper in place). I could do a video I guess if thats not any clearer than mud.
