    This tool does not have a specific channel for 3/16 tubing, need to use 1/4, so it is a little sloppy, the degrees are very hard to read because of poor stamping.
    too sloppy clamp for small tube (Posted on 3/18/14)

    I bought this bender specifically to bend 3/16 dia. tube as advertised. I have a bender for the 1/4"-3/8" tube already. When it arrived I saw that it had only 3 tracks.You are expected to bend the 3/16 tube in the 1/4" track. I found that when you started bending, because of the oversize slot, once you passed 90 degrees the tube would slip and then it would kink.I have bent may tubes before and you need a bender that holds the tube secure while bending. I am sorry to say, this one does not. I sent it back. It should not be advertised as a 4 tube size bender. It simply does not bend the small tube . It is a shame because I bought many tools from Eastwwod and this is the first one that disapointed me
    Would not bend 180 degrees (Posted on 6/12/13)

    I ordered this bender April 22nd and had to wait a number of weeks to get it as it was back ordered. When I did eventually get it, I found the bender would not bend 180 degrees. When the bend was just past the 90 degree marking, the two handles would collide, not allowing the tool to bend any further. I assume and it appeared one the handles was bent. I called about receiving a replacement and was told the tool was again back ordered to the middle of July. After shipping, I would receive a replacement about the beginning of August. I can not wait that long to complete my brake lines. I will find another option. The tool seemed sturdy. Thats why I gave it 2 stars.

    This is definitely only for workbench bending. Can not fit into small or tight places. Could never get it to bend to 180 degrees without kinking the line. I can hand bend much quicker.

    My daughter bought this a year ago along with the forming pliers to give to me for Christmas 2011.

    The hinge pin was malformed from the factory. This caused the two parts to be at agles to each other instead pr arrralel. The tool was less than useless.

    Eastwood said they would gladly replace it, if I would ship it back, but I had to pay the shipping. The shipping flat rate was more than this thing was worth when you consider the time and effort.

    Eastwood: if you sell defective goods, at least pay for their return.

    My daughter and I were not happy at all..

    Best tubing bender I've ever tried. Makes perfect bends in copper and steel. Didn't try aluminum.

    This tool makes bending 45°, 90° & 180° bends snap. The gauge that indicates where the bend will begin and end is sweet. I recommend this tubing bender

    Just received this tubing bender, it is very sturdy and works like a charm. Easy to make 45°, 90° 180° bends. I also like that the gauge lets you know where the bend will begin. Highly recommend this tool.

    Bought this to bend 3/16 alu tube to 180 degree.
    The bend never got pass 90 degrees. I tried a bigger size and the same problem happened.
    The groove on the bender is over size, so it does not prevent wrinkles on the under side of he tube. And since the handle of the bender does not fit the tube nicely, the tube will collapse easily. Furthermore, the actual product is different from the picture on the website

    Used this tool, with other brake bending tools, and by FAR this is superior to other leverage tools in bending brake tubing. Take your time, and you will get tight, quality bends with no kinks!

    Outstanding.
