started runing brake lines and I needed a way to straighten the coiled tubing .I cut a 3/16x3/16 slot in a piece of oak clamped it to a piece of plywood clamped in vice .push tubing thru . it doesn't come out arrow straight but close enough. also made a bender to get a couple tight bends I had . worked well.

Good work! It's part of the deal to make tools to do what you want to with metal!

Thumbs up

Good work. I just love the way most people around here just make things instead of buying them
The socket idea is great, i looked all around for the right dia. pipe to make mine and i had a draw full all along
Don't matter how old i get i keep learning new stuff.
The straightener is cool too. and the result look great.

thanks guy's. I have two store bought benders that dont work as well and your stuck with one radius size. and you almost need 3 hands to make them work. eastwood makes a cool tube straightener that is just some pulleys in a line, but it is expensive, I was going to make one like it and I could buy everything needed to make one for less than $30. I actually came up with the idea while I was at the surplus store with the pulleys to do it in my hand. put them back went home and made this piece that cost nothing.

got the doors roughed out and some primer on. my grandson was in the shop today to help me hang them. got these locking t-handles that I'm going to use ,they will work well with the bear claw latch kit I've got. not only that they cost a lot less than what I needed to use the original handles.
