Tube Straightener is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works really well I use this straightener on 3/8" Aluminum fuel line and 1/4" Stainless brake line. It works fantastic, you just have to "dial it in" which is easy to do after a couple passes. It doesn't waste any tubing and will straighten tube that has been severly bent as long as it's not kinked. It's a bit pricey (hence the imperfect rating), but does exactly what it says it does very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straight tubing in a flash Have to fabricate custom brake lines for a car project. Since brake line is shipped in a coil, it was a hassle to get a straight piece of line, This tool will give you a straight piece of line any length, quickly and easily. This tool is well worth it if you have to fabricate brake or fuel lines, a real time saver, also works as a wire straightener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've been building my arsenal of auto plumbing tools for the last couple of years. Swallowing the $200 was tough, but the tool IS worth the money. If I used it every day, I'd not have blinked an eye. It is built solid and the rollers are smooth. It is very effective. I took it out of the box and ran a piece of scrap pre-coiled tube through it, and after figuring it out, it was straight as an arrow. FYI, if you are using this, and find tubing is bowing, loosen up a tick, and it will straighten right back out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy built, very easy to use! I purchased this tool to straighten coiled 3/16", 5/16", and 3/8" tubing for hot-rod fabrication. The tool is heavily built and should last a lifetime. Initially, I used mine in a vise on 3/16" brake lines. Then later on, on 3/8" fuel lines. It works perfectly for both. The adjuster is easy to use and as you draw your tubing back and forth thru the rollers, it is very easy to adjust while pulling or pushing the tubing to straighten. I tried a couple of pre bent pieces and it doesn't work well on hard 90 degree bends.....it easily handles most anything else. The price is a little steep for an occasional user but the quality of the tool makes the price worth it. If you want traditional looking lines on your car and do not like the green coated sticks sold in parts houses, this is the way to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brake quip Tools This is the latest tool I purchased made by brake quip. I was able to use these tools at the SEMA show this last November. I would recommend purchasing the complete brake tools. It makes straightening, bending, double flaring copper/nickel and stainless steel lines from 3/16 to 1/2" in record time.

Description says 3/16 tubing size to 1/2 inch. But does not indicate whether or not different sets of the forming pulley wheels are needed to go from size to size. What's the true skinny here?

Asked by: drmayf
I haven't used the tool but will comment from my experience with machine tooling. The lack of sized rollers will not appreciably reduce the effectiveness of this type of tool. The tubing will guide, under straightening pressure, in the bottom of the radius of the forming wheels. It is adjustable so you should be able to dial it in with not too much trouble.
