For the money, not bad. I would recommend that if you're going to do more than 2 sets of brakes you get a better tool. The knob on this one came off after I did the second set of brakes!
Works especially well on over-sized pickup calipers, where a C-clamp doesn't fit well.
After getting tired of using clamps to press brake pistons I purchased this spreader and it's much faster and easier to use. This is one of the few American made spreader tools you can buy, and it costs about the same as the flimsier imports. It still looks and works like new after using it for several brake jobs.
There is not a lot to say about a basic tool that works except that it works.
I love your tools I'm a beginner mechanic and your guys tools have saved me money and helped me get the jobs done.
I am not a professional mechanic but I do a ton of brake jobs for friends and family. This tool just helps an easy job that anyone can do and makes it so much easier to finish.
