    Here's what they look like:

    http://www.rparts.com/Catalog/Tools_...nt/benders.asp

    Scroll down to the 3 in 1 benders. That's what you need. If you shop around, you can find them a lot cheaper.

    You will be amazed at how easy it makes the bending.

    mrnuke... What I was suggesting is that you put the evaporator in the cooler diagonally, so that the coolant flows through it instead of around it.

    what is the difference, by having it in diagonally is that better flow for the freon?

    No, for the coolant (anti-freeze mixture).

    If you pump the coolant in on one side of the evaporator, and out on the other side of the evaporator, then it has to go through the evaporator and get colder.

    I'm not sure if I am making this clear. The evaporator should be vertical, as it is now, but just turn it a little so the ends are against the sides of the cooler.

    hes just saying so the coolant has to be forced through the fins of the evap it has nothing todo with the freon or r-22... hes just saying if the liquid goes through the evap fins it has a chance to get a lil colder or stay at a cooler temp under load...

    Good work there guys..... This thread is excellent for someone who's just starting to make a chiller...... one question though and sorry if its off topic, H0w come there arent many who uses windshield wiper fluid, ive seen ones that are good to -45c and its alot cheaper than antifreeze..... also isnt alcohol a lil dangerous especialy if your pump is submerge in it? thanks....

    Windshield washer fluid is methanol alcohol mixed with water. It can be strengthened, if needed, with gas line anti-freeze, which is pure methanol. Many of the chillers in this forum are using this and it seems to work very well. I take it the concern here is the effects that this may have on the aluminum fins and/or the steel endplates. I know very little about the subject, so I'm just sitting back and watching.

    Yes, side to side just as in the red line. This divides the cooler into two triangular shaped compartments. If you pump your coolant into one of those compartments and out of the other, then the coolant is forced to flow through the evaporator.

    Ouch. This is where you start spending money, whichever way you go. You need to decide whether you want to get all the tools needed to fix it or to have someone do it for you. Either way, it is going to be expensive. Another idea would be to get another A/C and start over. No good choices.
