SPECIALTY TOOLS
will never be perfectly straight.
To help resolve this issue, Mueller Kueps developed the Brake Line
Straightener, No. 462040, which is
designed to take the coiled brake line
and make it straight. The line is fed
through one side, and the 16 internal
ball-bearings and wheels straighten it
as it comes out the other end.
Once the line is straightened and
ready to be cut, the Mueller Kueps Brake
Line Cutter, No. 462002, a specialty
hand tool designed to cut brake lines,
can be used. What makes this brake
line cutter stand out is the self-adjusting
blade mechanism.
"When you wanted to cut brake line
before this tool, you'd go around the
brake line and then have to tighten the
cutter and go around again," says Andre
van Lagen, national sales manager, North

is self-adjusting. You don't have to do
anything but ratchet around the brake
line and it cuts."

CONCLUSION
Specialty tools are important to the
automotive service industry, and their
development is largely a result of the
relationship between tool manufacturers and technicians. The communication of pain points, suggestions for
alterations, and expressions of needs
from end-users to manufacturers resonate throughout the industry and result
in the continued development of specialty tools. As the vehicles being serviced change, so too will the tools used
to work on them, and at the forefront
of that progression will be specialty
hand tools.
