    About Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool

    This brake flaring tool mounts in your vise to help you easily form 45-degree single, double and bubble flares in OE steel, stainless steel, and soft metal tubing for 3/16"-, 1/4"-, 5/16"-, 3/8"- and 4.75mm-diameter lines...which means it will handle all your plumbing jobs from brake lines to transmission cooler lines and fuel lines.

    "Turret-style" design allows you to make those precision flares in minimal time. All the brake-flaring forming dies you need are mounted right on the turret, so there's no fumbling for small parts, no worry about missing dies. "T"-handle screw clamp securely holds your line in place during forming.

    To use, simply insert the tubing, swing the turret to step 1 to set the proper line depth. Turn the turret to step 2, where you'll form the flare. To form a double flare, spin the turret to step 3 to form it without cracks or deformation, and in perfect alignment with the fitting. This assures a tight, leak-free, professional brake flare every time!

    Compare to high-dollar European or U.S. models and see for yourself—you can't beat the high-quality results you'll get with this brake-flaring tool. It's a professional-grade tool at a do-it-yourself price. Imported.

    After reading people rave about how nice this is I bought it on sale and I am 100% satisfied! Perfect flares every time - takes the worst part of doing brake lines out of the equation. If you have a big project coming up - don't hesitate to buy this.

    Ran all new lines on my 2000 GTP. Used nicopp line and it seriously double and bubble flared like it was play dough and came out perfect. Very easy to use, instructions are very clear and understandable, makes flares in the snap of a finger. Highly recommended

    A bit expensive but it pays for itself in effectiveness. Compare this tool to the typical cheapo wing nut assemblies and it's no contest. This flaring tool puts the flare on the tubing w/out mangling the tubing (wing nut jobs have serrated jaws that put teeth marks on the tubing) and makes the flare "square" on the end of the tube. Looks like a flare made by an industrial high volume process. FANTASTIC

    Wing nut tools make it VERY easy to put a crooked flare on the end of the tube and that's dangerous. Wing nut tools should be outlawed.

    For someone who does a lot of flaring, this tool is a no-brainer. Even if you only do occasional brake line fab work, I still think this tool is a no-brainer. The ease of use, it's near perfect execution, and the avoidance of frustration from using the wing nut tool is worth the money in my opinion. HIGHLY recommended.

    Its a bit expensive but that's what you pay for precision and durability. Yes the dies could stand to be cast a little bit cleaner. But they still get the job done very well.

    The fact that you get a wide selection of flaring sizes also adds a lot of value in my opinion. I do a lot of DIN/ISO bubble flares (single flaring op). But in the event I have to do some SAE double flares, i'm all set. No need to have another set of forming dies for my piece of crap wing nut tool. I'll be putting that junk tool in the back of the garage cabinet, probably never to be used again. A quality tool like this is long overdue in the American DIY , and even professional shop, marketplace. Thumbs up to Eastwood for making this tool easily available to the average Joe.

    Don't go to Eastwood if you want cheap tools or products. This flaring tool is just one of the examples of their professional grade equipment. Easy to use, great end results, pays for itself after one complete job.

    I have used several different manufactures brake line tools and most work ok on aluminum and common steel lines but have problems with stainless. The Eastwood brake line tool made the flairs in stainless with no problems, perfect every time. This was a great time saver.

    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.

    OH MY GOODNESS. This is probably the best tool I have ever purchased. The price is a bit high. I have been build street rods since 1960 and have made a lot of brake line during all those years using the hand held tool. My success rate was about 70%. With this tool I made a complete set of stainless line for my Lincoln. I do not have one failure. It is the easiest I have ever used. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANY ONE AND GIVE IT 100% RATING. For the hobbyist it may be a little to spendie, but with the quality of FLARES its awesome!!!!!
    Anybody can flare like a pro with this tool (Posted on 7/15/13)

    My son and I replaced all the brake lines on our '54 Pontiac Chieftain and this tool flared every single fitting perfectly the first time and this was the first time my son had ever run brake lines. It works great with 0.028" stainless steel also. Highly recommended.

    I've been working on hot rods for 30 years. I have several tube flaring tools already from OTC, BluePoint and a cheapest one. Some time ago they must have changed the brake line material as all these tools have trouble making quality flares. They are always crooked or the tubing ends up all scared.. I got one of these and every flare is perfect. It is expensive but works perfect and a flare takes just seconds. Well worth it. The only downside is you need to mount it in a vice so you have to remove the line from the car.
