  • Eastwood Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool
Eastwood Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 237.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from works great, obviously Chinese This tool does make great double flairs. I made a few trial runs first to get the hang of it and now they come out perfect every time. I was surprised at the amount of effort it takes to form the first step. It has to be clamped in a vise and it wants to move my whole bench. My complaint is the quality of some of the components. The two main parts of the tool are cast and look like something I might have gotten a bad grade on in high school metal shop. I can't understand why Eastwood (and us) accepts this poor quality, especially at this price. This is an expensive tool, even at the sale price. I guess this is what we've come to expect though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool I ever bought I have a bunch of custom cars I am working on and I have always hated flaring my own brake lines and you never can seem to find the right length premade. After throwing my old flaring tool across the garage I broke down and spent the money on the Eastwood flaring tool. I can honestly say this is one of the best tools I have ever bought, it worked perfectly the first time and literally takes seconds to make a perfect flare. Every time one of my buddies comes over I have to get it out and show them how well it works. I no longer cringe when I think about making a custom brake line, actually I am looking forward to using it again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fool if you pass it up took longer to unpackage (WHICH i got the tool the NEXT day, less then 20 hours after ordering), put in the vise and breeze through the instructions then to make the flare. 3/8" line. set die in place with line, adjust with tool (preset on turret), clamp down tight and set the OP1, pull, then OP2, pull and DONE! absolute beauty!!! the tool itself looks like cheap casting but i hope for YEARS of use!!! the time you save messing with one of those hand flare tools, you can be doing other things....its AMAZING tool, easy to use but takes some effort to pull the lever. Also, i flared factory Ford power steering line in the picture, NOT some thin wall brake line. 5 star for ease of use and quality of flare!!!

Is this tool made in the usa?

Asked by: 302ranger
I have asked around about this and I have been told it is made in vietnam just like my 52 inch husky tool box was. the tubing bender is made in canada. some people might not like this answer but that is the way it has been for many years. most of the factorys are iso9000 so the product coming out is generaly of good quality.

1. Will the 37 degree head flare 3/8 .049 stainless steel tubing? 2. Do you offer the tube flaring tool with the 37 degree head? I don't need the 45 degree.

Asked by: Alecks
The .049 wall tubing will be too thick as the maximum that should be used would be .032 wall tubing. Also, we do not have the ability to swap out the turrets.
