Nah. Don't know if it is good enough, I tend to go for Mill Spec.
and HF isn't generally.
Just picked one up. Looks and feels decent enough. Made of cast aluminum so definitely not milspec. Very small. Looks like the bend radius is 1/2" to 9/16". I'll be testing on some steel tubing this evening.
This is the one I have.
Bends steel brake line no problem. Haven't tried thickwalled ss tubing, but I imagine it would handle it fine just might bend a little harder. Cheaper than Carl's.
I have a few 6oz lead Blocks i got from a friend that i put in the boat
Bismuth's melting point is 520 F, 271 C. My water is not that hot, ouch.
