Can't beat the price!!!

June 11, 2014
I try to buy several extras every time I plumb a project. You can't beat the price.... and I always seem to need a new brake line or two for someone elses project between mine. Just a few of these in the shop and can time and money from running to the local parts store that charges 3 times as much. But the time savings is the best part. Nothing like having parts on hand when you need them.
Pros:
  • graet price buy extras
Yes, I recommend this product.
