    Same type of copper alloy tubing they use for the DIY brake lines. It will hold

    Despite the difficulty with so many Hervey products, I have to say, his braided clutch bleeder was/is great. I'd say it was probably the best product I ever got from him. I still have it on my car, and every time I pull my transmission (which has been 3 or 4 times in the last couple years) I've always been so happy I had it because it makes bleeding the clutch so easy. I'll never understand why he went and made it a solid copper tube (aside from cost cutting). It went from a truly great improvement, to an unusable piece of garbage.

    I really think that the SS braided line one is a product that the community would benefit from someone replicating.

    I agree with Nick. Here is my experience with the solid pipe contraption:
