I assembled my blade the other night, and it turned out awesome. Thanks again Jedi-Loreen!! It was really bothering me that the diffuser tube was bent though, because it was bending the whole blade assembly. So before final assembly I hung the tube from the ceiling and heated it up evenly with a heat gun (a real hot hair dryer may work) and it relaxed the tubing making it very maleable. With the heat and just a little bending it while it was hot, I got the diffuser tube straight as an arrow. So now the blade does not have a bend in it at all. It turned out sweet.
