Grin, My only issue with pex is that I bought a 100' roll of 1" stuff
and it was a pain trying to get it straight. Hot air gun and lots of
bending with arms... ughh. Maybe there's a better way to straighten it?

Cap one end, fill with hot water, lay out straight, drain to cool?
A hot air gun might work, too, but that could pose problems.
Maybe a hair dryer funnelled into the end...
I've only worked with it minimally so far, and the 1" was a beast to
arc. I had to use hot water just to get the ends to go on the
fittings, too. Once it's heated, it's much easier to work with. Of
course, I did the refit on the whole house water filter in the dead of
winter, just so I could experience cold PEX. :-\

with hot water . I only use mine for mixing and the first rise . FWIW I just
started recently using Seal of Minnesota unbleached baking flour from the
local Mennonite store . Beats the stuffin' out of the stuff we were buying
at Walmart . Picked up a 50 lb bag just today ... I make all our loaf bread
, hamburger and hot dog buns , bread sticks , pizza dough . The wife does
the sweet stuff ...
