A:  It depends on the material you are using for gas lines. This will bend aluminum, copper, or stainless tube without a problem.

      Lightweight at a price
      It is lightweight but to get it to be that light they made it from some sort of aluminum? Had not used it much, maybe 10 bends before the handle sheared right off. That was over a year ago. Thought it was made in the USA so I tossed it and figured I just got a bad one. I bought another one and after several months of occasional use it did it again! I do not abuse my tools. The upper handle shears right off were it narrows down inside the locking mechanism. Also, something noticed after researching was is going to be now 3rd bender (Ridgid 44852) is if you want to bend copper and have it come out clean ie. without distorting the tube - then look at a more reputable brand. There are 3 dies on this tool but it is billed as bending 4 different size tubes?

        This tube bender works perfect on brake and fuel line tubing. I have 2 other tube benders, but this product works perfect every bend. The ratchet handle works great when making 180° bends. This bender has not had issues with any kinking and flattening of the tubing that occurs with some tube benders.

        Imperial 3/16 in. to 3/8 in. 180 Triple Header Tube Bender
        It is advertised as a 3/16 to 3/8" tubing bender but its realy a 1/4 to 3/8" tubing bender. I ordered it because I need a 3/16 btubing bender, its a nice tool but it kinks the 3/16. I will have to return.. Really delayed my project, very disappointed.

          Its a great little bender. However, there is a weak point, the stop that is cast into the handle breaks off very easily. The manufacturer will not honor the warranty. Use only with very soft material.

          Hello LLave,

          Thanks you for your review. However, we do not understand your statement that Stride Imperial does not honor the warranty. That is certainly not the case. Please send details of the actions you have taken to make the warranty claim as we cannot find any trace.
