Eastwood Pro Brake Tubing Flaring Tool is rated 4.762114537444934 out of 5 by 227.
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!!!

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 Nice tool! If you watch the video and follow ha suggestions, you will find this is a good tool. I don't like doing things twice and can't stand the cheap tools so I stepped up and spent a few extra buck for what seemed to be a quality tool. A few practice flares and I was flaring stainless steel like a pro! The two tools that need to be high quality are torque wrenches and brake tools, after all my car and all the work I have put into it, needs to stop well. Now I'll call Eastwood out to make a tool to make stress coils on my brake lines.

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 4 out of 5 by from Excellent flaring tool Once you get over the price and get one in your hands and see it's performance, you may forget what it cost. Bought it to do stainless stell, and stainless steel it did...took a couple practice runs(I kept cracking the inner flare on operation 2, just had to relax a little on the lever) On mild steel, will continuosly(fromthe first flare) make a perfect double 45 degree flare. If you need a double flare and don't want to play with the slipping of the tube or the uneven flares, climb the price hill to see the fantastic view of easy perfect flares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eastwood Professional Tubing Flaring Tool I bought the tubing flaring tool awhile ago, but wanted to use it a few times before leaving a review. I used it, and like anything else new to me, it took a couple practice lines but I got used to it, everything was great. It is everything that you guys at Eastwood, and all the people that left the great reviews said it is. I am by no means a pro, but with this flaring tool and the Eastwood 180 Degree Tubing Bender that I purchased, I think my lines are better then some of the work I've seen, and its much quicker with the right tools thanks to you. I recommend this tool to anyone that gets a thrill out of doing something yourself, and doing it right !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Flare Tool I've ever used! I just bought this flare tool, arrived today actually. But I have used this tool in the past as a buddy of mine owns one as well. I have used this flare tool when I redid all the brake lines on my '83 Subaru wagon. I had to remake every external line on that car due to rust issues, and while I was doing a full restoration on it anyway, what a better time to get all the lines made. I also had the unique pleasure of using this tool while trying to flare a main brake line which ran down the rocker inside the car. Holding to tool steady to form the double flare was a bit interesting, but we managed to make it work just fine. Even under those circumstances, the tool made a PERFECT double flare! Thank you Eastwood for offering such an amazing tool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Flaring Tool Ive ever owned!!!! Bought this a month ago, read the instructions and immediately produced manufacturer perfect flares with little effort. Stainless steel lines took a little more effort however still got perfect double flares. Own several other flare tools and none of them come close to the flare quality as this tool produces.

For the split dies, do you always use the beveled counterbores for flare forming? Are the non-beveled counterbores ever used?

Asked by: JeffGee
The flat side will be used for DIN flares.

Will your professional flaring tool make a DIN flare on 6mm steel brake line?

Asked by: Tim T
As of my experience a few moments ago, the answer is no.  The die will not clamp 6mm line as it's sized for 6.35mm (1/4").  Even with 1/4" line, I'm not certain it will make a bubble flare.  Do will simply use  "1/4 OP1" for a bubble flare?

Have you started selling this with the 37* flare die, instead of the 45* die yet?

Asked by: Kevin1456
so. no. the tool does not come with either the 37* or 45*, you would need to purchase the 37* die on top of the price of the tool.  Most people who build custom tubes in the automotive world, use 37* AN fittings, where this would be useful. 45* if used mostly in HVAC and other applications. THERE SHOULD BE AN OPTION TO RECEIVE A 45* or 37* DIE.
