tbh think you are waisting your time with that tool as the rear brakes need to be wound back in different directions . i bought this tool and well tbh its the best .buy it one time dose all your cars and well everything in it u need

I have seen this kit in another thread about doing the rear brakes. However I do not want to buy this kit, because of the limited space.

I would like to know if doing the brake job is doable with the cube tool. I think it will, but asking here just in case.

In my T27 that cube would have been just perfect. Ofcourse it depends how those pins fit to piston's holes and ofcourse how jammed pistons are but in my case those pistons wasn't jammed at all.

I rewind  mine T27 pistons with tool like 2009joe posted.

tbh by look of that cube thing looks like would be alot of extra work that tool is handy the kit but suppose its up to you .me i wouldnt bother trying breaks without that kit there it makes life really handy for the price its not really that big tbh either

I am with 2009joe regarding using the proper rewind kit. I have the same kit and it gives constant pressure against the piston. Also one of the calipers are reverse thread. It's just easier with the kit and I got mine from Ebay about 6 years ago, usinged it on different cars, so already paid for itself. 

If you try the cube, it's cheap so not an expensive fail. 

While on the subject of rewinding the pistons, make sure the piston cutouts/holes used for rewinding, end horizontal to the caliper. This aids installation so the nipple on the back of the inner brake pad, sits with the cutout/hole. Otherwise there will be problems!

It´s probably possible to do the job with that cube too, but it will be more laborius.  

I`ve once done the rewinding even with the tip of the pliers... I took the disc off and fastened the caliber back so it did not rotate while rewinding.

Nowadays I  have the same kit as 2009joe and I highly recommend to use it.
