Tad,
Looks like you nailed it. In future, you can bend any AL tubing with nothing more than a spring that fits over the area you want to bend and a form with the radius you want ... as long as the radius is not too tight. AL work- hardens Bending hardens it. As others have cautioned, annealing it properly takes some care. With a mild radius, most tubing won't get too brittle.
