    I've had one for years but it works just as well for bending steel fuel and brake lines
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    That looks somewhat easier to get accurate bends than the one i have that doesn't have the calibrations marked thereon.

    Horrible things to use, I much prefer the Swagelok benders with wheels rather than a fixed shoe. I have every size from 1/4 tight rad to 1/2 and some metric ones, 1/2 s/s is a real workout even with the wheels.

    The miniature version of the tool shown in the OP...

    https://www.harborfreight.com/1-8-ei...der-94571.html

    will handle tubing down to 1/8" diameter. Works well for plumbing miniature steam engines.
