I received a email today from the company that made the old pipes. Not using the name, long story short is I was told the company that was contracted to build all the pipes went out of business and they kept all the molds and templates for the test pipes. So they are having to start from scratch on new ones. They are working on new sets and will be in production shortly.
Now I take this with a grain of salt until I actually see something because some quotes I got on digitizing my mockups and having quite a few sets mandrel bent to these specs is not cheap. For a big company it is no big deal because eventually they are making money but for me it is alot of money up front. Plus I am not a vendor on here so I would have to pay for that also.
