Do they make a pipe wrench shorter than 6 inch ? Asking for a relative trying to get a rounded brake line fitting out of a tight spot

How did they measure how tight they were?

Rigid made a 4in I have one. I got mine from my boss. Likely he bought on 80s. A plumbing supply may stock one if not at home depot etc. I used mine on a twisted off brake caliper pin that i couldn't get good enough grip with vise grip, so I understand.

I would love to have a 4in. wrench. I have a Ridgid 6. Cute actually! But useful in tight places. I dont see any place that makes a 4inch pipe wrench I have to laugh a little, I have two 6inch pipe wrenches that say heavy duty on the handle.

I have a few about that size I got from the Snap on truck.

I have another even shorter than that but it involved a hacksaw.

Was out on the rig around a bunch of pipeline welders one time. They were having a contest to see who could squeeze some vise grips the tightest. The smallest welder won.

Time for the blue wrench and the baby vice grip. I have found heat and cool with PB blaster helps. The line is usually rusted to the fitting. Since my brother in law got one of those Hydrulic brake flaring tools. I buy the copper nickel line by the roll and replace the old line.

This.

A pipe wrench in a tight area where a brake line fitting is? Good luck with that.

Use a small vise grip to grip well and break the rust free. I will not buy any locking pliers unless they say Vise Grip. If it's on a wheel cylinder, pull the wheel cylinder off the backing plate and unscrew it.

Vice Grip even makes a Hand Break which is used to bend sheet metal.

Seriously, how the heck did anyone fix anything before the invention of the Vise Grip? I just looked it up, and the Vise Grip was invented in 1924.

To answer your question, things used to be bigger and often square, easier to grab, and they didn't use salt on the roads to rust everything up. I do love Visegrips though and have a good collection of the different types and sizes. I often buy older ones at swap meets as they are nicer than the new ones. I guess the new ones are just as useable but somehow the older ones (before Visegrip sold) are nicer.

LW series for Locking Wrench, not crimpers.

Try an IRWIN 4LW. Same as above but a 4 inch one.

Is he replacing the line?

If so, cut it off, use a 6 point socket.

That is used to crimp ends on battery cables.

No they aren't terminal crimpers. In fact I've got several different sizes of them, and they are great on screwed up fasteners as long as they have at least part of two flats left.

The V side seats on the flats and the other side locks them right.

You'd be surprised at just how good they work when nothing else will.

I havent seen one, but I suppose there may be a specialty type out there. I needed something similar once and just cut the handle shorter on a basin wrench. Not as good as a pipe wrench, but cheaper to cut in two, and it worked for what I was doing.
