Has anyone tried one on brake line? They come in different sizes but seem to get nice tight bends.
Wanted - spare time.

This is what Ihave been useing.

It seems to bend the tube tight enough.


Keep in mind that the bend is proportional to the tube size.

If you bend it too tight it will collapse

That not exactly correct your radius has stayed the same, you have just made a 180 degree bend.

The radius is the round block you are bending around. 1/2 the size of your round block (reduce the radius) and see what happens.

That why different size dies have a different size arc
