    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.

    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!!
    for bending brake lines w/o crimping they're the best (Posted on 11/2/09)

    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.

    I work for a restoration shop in Houston, Tx. I have used these in a professional environment and I have seen professional results. I often find myself fabricating brake lines and these come in quite handy. Bare in mind, these are primarily designed for making slight adjustments and not complete bends. When used for what they're intended, these work great. They are a welcome addition to my tool box.
    great tool (Posted on 10/31/09)

    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!!
    Very good tool for the mechanic that has to get the job done (Posted on 10/31/09)

    I found these pliers to be particularly handy for tight bends and tight working spaces. They are not a manufacturing tool, so to speak, in that you don't insert the tubing and the tool does all the work for you. They provide a bending surface that helps prevent kinks, especially when the bend radius needs to be tighter than ideal for the tube diameter. The jaws of the pliers are sharp enough that they will leave a small ring cut into any coating on the tubing, so "working" a complicated bend will result in tool marks on the tube. All that being said, it is the first bender I reach for when doing brakes.

    They are great for making small adjustments for alignment without making the tubing look as if it were bent over someone's knee.
    Pretty Good (Posted on 10/30/09)

    Tool works pretty good but you have to bend carefully cuz the brake lines will still kink if you are not patient.

    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.
