  1. Hello Guys,
    Great video. Especially liked two tools, the bending tool for short fine tuning turns and your tip on forming a coiled line at the end. I recently completed plumbing a 32 Ford with 1/4″ stainless tubing. I had two areas that fit “my way of doing” a bit better. No-1 I preferred a ratchet type tubing cutter over the one in your kit such as the one made by Wiss, good square cuts less effort and time. No-2 I preferred placing the handle of my tubing bender in a vise for better control of the bend. Your bender with the rubber handles is somewhat awkward for me to fit into the vice jaw. If you place the handle w/o the rubber, the vise jaws tend to chew up the aluminum after a while. Lastly, making a custom short line adapter line having different sizes on each end could have been of interest.

    One area that I ran into running 1/4 inch tubing with 7/16-20 male threads as Ford did back in the day was adapting this fitting to a 1/8 NPT female stainless tube that passed through my boxed frame having a 3 AN male fitting on the other end. Seems no one longer makes a 1/4″ inverted Female tee having one leg a 1/8 npt male any more. Any ideas aside from added adapter fittings? Again, great video. Best Regards, Walt

  2. When do you use the other dies? One side says 45 degrees and the other says “din”, what does that mean?

  3. DIN is used when making bubble flares and the 45 degrees side is for standard single or double flares.
