    I used this tool along with the Eastwood Steel 3/16 Brake line kit that came with fittings. For the price I thought it was worth a try. I found it very useful. For me it did make an tiny indention on some bends where I didn't do it well, but it never kinked or did anything close to what I would consider an issue. I used it to make a new driver side wheel to proportioning valve line, (2-3 tight 90 degree bends) came out great. I then made some custom hidden lines from the Master down to the frame. These worked great, very pleased with them and the brake line.

    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 $$$.

    Purchased Eastwood products in the past. Have your TIG, Powdercoat system, and numerous restoration products. Your products have always been first rate. This tool feels like a wrench manufactured in early 1900's China, The jaws are as rough as the handles. Being an SAE member, and working in MAC Tools corp a few years, maybe I expect too much. Do not try a serious bend..although great foy "tweeks".

    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.
    Great Tool! (Posted on 2/13/11)

    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.

    I like this tool for slight bends but it will not make 90 degree bends as shown in the video without pinching the brake line half shut even in the soft brake line. It does put a mark on the brake line even in slight bends but not bad. I did file the tool very slightly with a round file so it now makes a slight crease instead of a sharp looking cut that damages any coating on the line.
