Eastwood Brake Line Forming Tool is rated 4.0638 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but only when used as intneded. These work very well for the intended use; IE slight tight radius bending near wheel and master cylinder fittings to get correct fit-up. The head is a bit large for some situations, especially with 3/16" tube .They work best with steel tubing; not as well with 300 series stainless because I think stainless work hardens so easily. They are a useful addition to my fabricating tools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I got it! Surprisingly, I need to use the brake line pliers within an hour of when they were delivered. The line on my compressor to the cut-off switch had developed a leak, and they were perfect to re-align the tubing so I could get up and running right away. I have used them a couple of times since then working on the brake and clutch lines on my Pontiac Fieros that I'm restoring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than autozone tools... I'm running all new lines on my truck. I have one of the autozone tubing benders and it works really well but you cant make small, tight bends with it. I found these pliers on ebay for $15 so I thought I would try them out. I think the edge needs to be rounded all the way out to avoid kinking a line but it still beats wrapping the line around a socket to get a tight bend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool at a good price! I needed a good quality tube plier for tight bents close to fittings. I looked at several different pliers from different companies and found these to be the best for the money. It is a well-made plier and worked perfectly on forming several tight bends! Eastwood…please continue to provide quality tools at affordable prices to the auto enthusiast!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tool needs revision Eastwood please listen! Make these pliers as double sided contour pliers instead of a sharp edge on one side. I do an average of 3 whole brake line systems a week, and every time I do a bend, it puts marks on the line or crimps the line a little with tight radius bends. If you did this, you would have the number one bending tool in the industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nifty, Easy to Use Often as I make brake lines for race cars, I need a tight bend without crimping the line. I used many tools and methods to do this usually wasting a lot of time. This line pliers does the job easily. Now it is not a problem to make a tight bend close the fitting and get the line run just right. A must have tool for working with brake lines.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool I bought two, one for my son n' myself. After testing on a few scrap pieces and little filing they were put into service. They are invaluable for tweaking the lines or just holding while you start the fitting. Even OEM lines won't just "snap" together. Your personal skill level will determine how the project looks not the tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought them! Used standard brakeline tool to form a complete set of lines for an Austin Healey Sprite I was restoring. Once the lines were in the chassis, the forming pliers were essential to make those small final adjustments which made the line instalation look "factory". Very easy! I'll never bend a brakeline over a socket again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tool I have just purchased this tool and found it to be a great for tweaking the brake line for the correct fit into the Brake Cylinder or Proportional Valve. It does leave a small mark where the jaws clamp onto the line but nothing that will impede the flow of fluid through to the brakes. All up, it works for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great tool This is a great tool if it used for the intended reason it was designed and that is to make final bends and small adjustments to the tubing to make it fit right. It is NOT to make ALL bends from start to finish of the entire project. I just wish I had got one sooner. This is GOLD in my tool box!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fair product with limited use Product works as stated but--does leave unsightly ring marks on the tubing. At first I thought I was doing something wrong, but could not prevent the marks from happening with several tries. Would only use this where absolutely needed and where the results would not be seen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed This is the first time I have ordered a tool from Eastwood and been let down. When making the second bend ever with the tool, the rivet broke and the tool fell apart. I realize the tool was inexpensive, but it should not fall apart within the first 5 minutes of using it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fair I tried to use is to modify some stainless steel trans. cooling lines and found it to be difficult to bend the stainless. Could not get enough leverage with the sidways motion. It may work better on regular steel lines. The jaws leave marks on the tubing also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When in a tight corner, bend your way out! There is no subsitute for a quality bender but with the Eastwood brake pliers, tight bends in a narrow confine are very easy. There is absolutely no way you can make a brake line fit a closely in a tight place and seem so factory like as with these pliers!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your money for a traditional bender I bought this instead of a traditional bender, and wish I would have just bought a roller-style bender. This one left dimples in my Napa coated brake line tubing, even with mild bends. It was worth a try, but save your $$$.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lifesaver for it's purpose Gets those tight short bends you can't get with anything else. Best suited for steel lines, stainless is just to hard to bend with anything this cheap. You get better the more you use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product! Initially I thought this tool was kind of expensive, but once I felt the quality construction, I changed my mind - it's great! Another great product from the #1 automotive tool company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and they work for alot of jobs I use these quite often on nitrous hardlines. Especially for purge solenoids...good stuff, they work in tight areas without removing the part from the work area. Great tool!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from eastwood brake line forming pliers I used these to form my hard lines for a chevy 12 bolt rearend, they work decent, I had nothing else to use and for $10.00 and free shipping, I had to try them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 star for the price you cant go wrong, for some one that needs to bend tubing every once and a while it really works great. i recommend a flaring tool to go with it.
Date published: 2009-12-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked okay Works better with 3/16 tubing than 1/4 inch. I didnt like the "ring" in left where the tool grabs the tubing so I`d say its okay where looks dont matter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Value This tool is far better then others I have used or tried to use for tight bends. No more severe kinking of lines. A welcome addition to my tool chest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent tool They are great for making small adjustments for alignment without making the tubing look as if it were bent over someone's knee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Tool works pretty good but you have to bend carefully cuz the brake lines will still kink if you are not patient.
