I've built all my own brake lines and it is doable with a little practice and the tools and materials are not very expensive.
Had the SS lines from the late Doug Reid and they work-harden and no longer seal after a couple of times tightening. I've done mild steel for practice and recommend cunifer.
Federal Hill Trading is a great source for all info and supplies for building brake lines:
Eastwood has good inexpensive 3/16" flaring tools. For pix see my gallery:
See my other galleries for more flaring. Also there are lots of YouTube videos on flaring.
Also suggest Lisle tube bending pliers - can do tighter bends than the Harbor Freight tube benders.
