A simple and cheap steamer for bending wood can be made using a pressure cooker and some ordinary pipe fittings.Screw out the center post of a pressure cooker.A Presto brand cooker has 1/4-in.pipe threads; others may be different.
Purchase adapters for this fitting so it will connect with 1/2-in.flexible (ribbed) tubing, and a pipe n*ppl* and bell adapter to bring the other end out to fit a 2-in.pipe.A piece of 2-in.pipe about 50 in.
long makes an excellent steam chamber.The length should be an inch more than the longest piece you plan to bend; you can always lengthen the chamber by adding couplings and more pipe.Use another bell reducer on the other end, then put on a faucet to regulate the amount of steam and drain excess water.
I use our kitchen pressure cooker; all these fittings cost less than $15...
