BSL Hot Shot pipes are made of 2mm thick, high-grade stainless steel 2 3/4" (70mm) tubing. Each model is put in its own intended mold for accurate fitment and the welding process includes the filling of the pipe with a gas under extreme low pressure to prevent any irregularities. After the pipes have been welded, the bents are annealed to relief any stress. They are then hand inspected and prepared for polishing in an 8 step grinding and sanding process. Finally, another 4 step polishing process, which involves different polishing pastes and polishing discs, gives the pipes a mirror shine finish.
