Just measure the existing ones with a string or whatever and go get ni-cop ones at the parts store. You can bend those by hand.

I don't recall seeing any, and I bet if I had seen some I would have immediately passed on them as it sounds super expensive. The straight sticks are sold at auto parts stores, they sell the benders there, and the stuff is super easy to bend the way you want it.

What these guys say is true.
I needed to make a couple of brake lines for a recent project and I'd never done it before.
I bought a roll of brake line tubing and a flaring tool and went after it.
One of the ones I needed was a fairly complex bend, but it came out great.
I was really hesitant at first, but I actually kind of enjoyed making my own.
