Is it possible to make an X-pipe out of scratch. I have a pipe bender and I was thinking of making my own X-pipe. Will this be possible and will it sound good?

Yeah, try and look for schematics of the way x-pipes are formed. I was thinking bend two pipes. Cut both corners and weld together like that. There may more to that equation though

If you can bend you can cut and weld. Just take you time and bend a little at the time till you get it perfect

I'm sorry, I don't think any of us know the right angles and lengths to bend at. I'm sure you got eagle eyes
