    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.

    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.
    Good, but only when used as intneded. (Posted on 10/30/09)

    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.
    Glad I bought them! (Posted on 10/30/09)

    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.

    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.
