First, prepare all loose components including the middle tube, tube ends, socket, nut, and lock wires.
Middle tube: Cut the aluminum tube to be the size and bend it at the required angle shape, so we have the middle tube ready.
Tube end parts: Manufacture the two aluminum 6061 tube end parts by using the CNC tuning method.
Socket and Nut: Manufacture the 2024 alloy socket and nut by using the CNC turning method.
Lock wires: Prepare the stainless steel lock wires by use cutting metal.
Secondly, weld the two tube end parts with the middle tube, make them be one piece firmly without any leakage problem.
After that, assemble the socket, nut, and lock wire on the middle tube, so the complete hose end is ready.
