- After reading some of the negative reviews on this item, I was a little bit reluctant to purchase them. My biggest concern was that some people wrote that the pliers had an uneven jaw alignment and they marred the brake lines or simply didn’t work. I had never tried brake line pliers before. I had always used a socket in a vise and that seemed to work out alright. But this time, I had some very difficult bends to make and very little room to access the area where I was working. I was absolutely amazed at how easy these pliers made the job, for me. I love my tools and have tons of them. But these pliers now hold a special spot on my tool bench for saving me so much time and aggravation. They arrived on time, in perfect condition and they DID NOT damage the brake lines in any way. Also, the jaw was in perfect alignment. I would buy from this seller again.
- Maybe I received the “Big Lots or Dollar Store” version from China.Cast handles are misaligned, off center. The product photo as advertised shows perfect round holes, when closed.Not what I received.Reluctant to try, but did. Causes deep cuts in tubing.I purchased this from Amazon and compared reviews, my best choice was wrong.Also, Not two day Prime delivery but three.Photos to follow.Seller welcome to comment.
- Tight bends made easy. Best bender I’ve ever used and the simplest. I was able to make sharp compound bends without any creases. It does leave a mark where it grips the line but very minimal. Was able to rebend existing lines and bend new lines exactly as I wanted. And tighter bends than I could ever make with my other benders. No reason to use any other.
- I destroyed over 50 bucks worth of brake lines trying to bend master cylinder to distribution block lines for my 1067 scout and read about these in an article online. the cheap rounded benders you get from harbor freight and the like are garbage compared to these. they have a nice black coating that did not come off while bending over 50 feet of brake line. some were very complex ? shapes and they all came out flawlessly without kinking.I wish I had known about these sooner they were a life saver
- The description states, “Shaped jaws bend tubing without distortion”. I did not do any of the line forming for the vehicle yet but did test these pliers on a bunch of scrap line and you CAN distort and kink line with these if not careful. The first few bends were fine and then I got a kink. so they are not fool proof.What does work good for fairly tight 90 degree bends and cost about the same as these pliers is a Titan mini tubing bender also found here on Amazon. I bought one of those at the same time and played with it as well and it worked great.
- If you will be bending brake lines 20 hours per week, go buy a $200 professional tool. You will not be happy with this one. If you are a backyard mechanic that wants to save a few bucks by making your own lines on an as needed basis, this is your 5 star tool.
- This is a great tool for “tweaking” brake lines in tight quarters. I would have given this tool 5-Stars if not for the poor alignment of the jaws on the first pair that arrived.AMAZON TO THE RESCUE… I called them, filed a quality deficiency, Return/Replace item report and they sent a replacement out immediately.On the down-side – The delay to my client was not very well appreciated. But hey!… Life happens.
- This was used to do brake lines on a truck and had no problems. If my husband planned on doing lines more often we probably would have spent more money, but he wasn’t disappointed with these. We will see how they work on the next set of lines, but so far they’re working out.
