I have a Harbor Freight 5/8" tubing bender and the multi-bender for brake lines and such.
Just be sure if you use flares for connections that you know what angle the flare should be. Automotive and AN (Airplane stuff) fittings use different angle flares. (37 degrees for AN and 45 degrees for Auto)
What are you working on?
