FEDHILL FAST AND EASY BRAKE LINE INSTALLATION
When that routine brake job turns into a nightmare of rusted brake lines, impossible to find brake line fittings and unreliable flaring tools, you've come to the right place.
You won't believe how easy Cunifer™ copper nickel brake line is to work with. The 007 Flaring Tool is the easiest and most reliable flaring tool you'll ever use. Combine these with our brake line fittings and technical assistance and you have everything you need to tame that nightmare.
THE ORIGINAL BRITISH MADE CUNIFER™ TUBING
FedHill is the exclusive importer for Cunifer™ brake line products. Cunifer™ is a seamless, copper-nickel alloy DOT approved brake line that is as strong as steel, completely corrosion proof and is easier to work with than any other brake lines on the market. It is easy to bend, which allows it to be snaked into positions that conventional brake lines cannot. Cunifer™ also flares easier, seals better and requires less preparation than any other tubing on the market. It does not rust, so it is perfect for any environment. No other brake tubing compares for strength, reliability and ease of installation!
Fedhill brake line out-brakes the competition!
We have been providing the finest quality brake line products available to both manufacturers and individuals since 1995. Since then, the marketplace has been flooded with cheaper imitations. Major U.S. corporations are making claims stating that their copper/nickel tubing meets the SAE specification J1640 for copper/nickel tubing. Customers calling with problems using the imitation tubing alerted us to investigate the competition. If you’ve been looking at the lower priced competition, please take the time to consider why our tubing is more expensive and how that benefits you.
We purchased samples to find out what the problem was and found that the competitions claims are as flimsy as their tubing. The bare minimum specification for wall thickness is .025”, the middle of the spec. is .028” with a max of .031” Our samples of their tubing measured at .022”, and some customers have reported a wall thickness of only .019”! The .003” variance between the .019” and .022” samples was surprising, and the fact that it is nowhere near specification is alarming.
Working directly with manufactures for all these years, it’s no secret to us the problems with making and assembling pressure conductors (brake lines), and the burden our product bears. Even when every component IS in spec., there are 1 out of a thousand joints that fail everyday on the assembly line, and the industry is working hard to improve on that. Please read this white paper from the SAE to learn why.

Their tubing should cost less, a lot less. There’s between 28% to over 45% MORE metal in our tube than theirs. Our tubing is not made to the bare minimum specification but manufactured to a tighter tolerance from the medium to the maximum of specification. Generally speaking, our tubing is more better :)
It doesn't cost that much more for the very best. More metal in your brake tube and more security for those who want the best. This causes fewer problems and less headaches with your installation.
This is how the best of the U.S. Corporate competition measures up, and then there’s the tubing made in Mexico, China and India that’s flooding the marketplace.
High performance manufacturers such as Aston Martin, Porsche, Volvo and Audi have chosen to install copper-nickel alloy over all other materials including stainless steel brake lines.
It is the perfect replacement brake line tubing for cars, trucks and buses. Snow plow operators know that replacement steel brake lines rust out faster than the OEM brake lines. Two years later you're replacing the brake lines again. Cunifer™ copper nickel brake lines do not rust! Ever!
