Making those formed in Tee's could be tricky. The originals are steel tubing and I tried to replicate them once without a lot of success but I may try again this winter.

Those are the ones I am going to try to duplicate. I have two sets, one real nice and straight and one that looks like a pretzel. I am thinking I will drill the long tube and flare the bottom tube and then file the flare to fit tight and silver solder it.
