Until you get the hang of it you may mar your brake line. Don't grab the line with the pliers so as to twist it to bend the line. Instead, hold the brake line in the correctly sized slot, then bend the line along the curved groove with your other hand while resisting the temptation to clamp the tool any harder than will keep the brake pipe in place. Results can be excellent. I find no fault with this tool now that I have the hang of it. I used it to plumb the brake lines of an antique Lotus Europa. It is perfectly capable of scoring and damaging your line if you mishandle it. It is also well capable of helping you do a nice job you can be proud of when you use it with care.

Tool is comfortable to use, and seems to be pretty well made. I practiced making bends in 3/16" steel brake line tubing with it in preparation for making up a new left rear brake line for my Chevy Pickup. Some bending is better made with Eastwood's other tool, or similar, where you need a larger radius. Can be used to "tweak" the brake line after it has ben installed. I would reccomend this tool.

Did the job. Leaves crimp-like marking at the bend when using nickle-copper brake line as it is softer then the regular 1/8" steel line.
I tried it on a good section of the old steel line that I replaced and it didn't leave any marks

This tool works well IF you wrap some tape around the tubing. Otherwise you get kinks. But it does get into the tight places as advertised

It is a lot easier and cheaper to just bend the brake lines by hand.

Tried a couple times with this tool, but gave up. Probably would have been better if I clamped the line then used this tool. Or used another pair of pliers to hold on to the line first.

Saw these and had to order. I was at first skeptical if it would bend lines without kinking. When they arrived I tried them out on a 3/16" line and they formed nice bends in both directions. Just make sure you have the pliers the right way around ...watch the demo video

I liked the price, availability thru amazon and quick delivery. You will have to spend some time playing around with this to get the feel of it. I would say you have to be a fairly good mechanic to work with this tool.

I don't use this to form and shape new lines, that are still not installed in the car. Other tools and techniques work more easily for that. But when I need to straighten out lines that are still installed in the car, this is great to have. Saves me lots of frustration and time. For example, if Icut a line that's running along a panel and I need to re-flare it, this is good for bending the line to get clearance (it's easy to bend it away from the panel with your hands, but much harder to bend it back into position parallel with the panel by hand). For another example, I had to relocate an ABS pump to another part of the engine bay and extend all the lines to it, and this was good for straightening out all 5 lines where they were tightly radiused in multiple planes close to the framerail. I practiced on some scrap line first to get the hang of it. Using polyarmor coated steel lines, I have no trouble with kinks. It does put little straight-line nicks in the polyarmor where you grab the line, but that's strictly cosmetic.
