    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.

    Like the others have said, it is a great tool, I have used it only a few times so far but every flare has been perfect. It seems to be made to last as well. The price is high but you get what you pay for I guess.

    I purchased this tool several months ago when Eastwood offered a one day sale on line for $153.99. What a great tool for this kind of money, it really is worth the full price of $219.99. This tool makes double flares so fast and easy and don't make those ugly grooves next to the flare as those bar type do. The base of this tool is made of cast alumimum and will get damaged in a vise if you don't protect it in some way as you need to clamp it pretty tight. I have no regret in buying this tool,I just love it.

    This week the shop I work at purchased one of these tools to flare stainless brake lines on 55 Chevy. This tool actually works on stainless which are impossible to do with the cheap wingnut type of tools and is much easier to use. I will probably buy one for my personal tool box at home since I have made hundreds of flares on projects in the past. I agree with the review by Bloose that a set of optional 37* AN dies would make the this tool the ultimate.

    After messing around with the "cheaper" double flaring tools the adage "you get what you pay for" rang true once again. This tool makes flaring simple, quick and painless. Even stainless steel lines are easily flared. Don't waste your money on the others if you will be making very many flares.
    Perfect Flare On The First Try!!! (Posted on 9/28/10)

    I was replacing every hard line on my F100. After an day of botched flares with my old hand held tool, I decided I would give this Eastwood Tool a try. I was a little shy of the price, but decided that if it worked it would pay for itself on the first job. Boy did it work!!! I cut a few short pieces of tubing and found that it was IMPOSSIBLE to make a BAD flare. I bent, flared and installed every tube on my F100. Then bled the brakes! Not one leak!!! This is one buying decision I have not regretted. Thanks for a great tool Eastwood!

    After using the Mastercool $400.00 tool which works very well, this flaring does the same job in about half the time. I show it off to my friends all the time!!! Hopefully they will come out with one that does "bubble" flare as well as the late model GM fuel line fitting.

    I have used various flaring tools over the years and have even bought expensive ones that claim to do a great job Ive spent $150 on some of those expensive ones. None of those flaring tools will make a double flare that works everytime. Well this tool does its worth the price cause it works and does what it claims to do. This tool is very easy to use and takes out any guesswork. Thanks for a great tool Eastwood !!!!!!!
    Great tool to add to our shop. (Posted on 8/14/10)

    So, I've never done any flaring before, but remember my Dad trying to use one of the handheld jobs years ago. Didn't want to go through that hassle again, so opted for the Eastwood tool. It was a bit more money than than the expensive manual units, but seemed a whole lot easier, and looked to be more idiot-proof (which comes in handy for me.)

    Received it the other day, and had to waIt a couple of days to try it as the line I ordered was trailing the tool. Gave me a chance to check out how the tool was made, and how it's supposed to work.

    When the tubing arrived, I cut off a 1' piece as a test piece, and had at it. Aside from a bit of indecision as to when the tool stroke was completed, it was dead-nuts easy to form a perfect flare in about a minute. Doing the other end of the test piece yielded another perfect flare in about 20 seconds. Then I cut off one of the flares, installed a fitting, and formed a third perfect flare in another 15 seconds. Then I bent up the test piece to use as a bench bleed rig for the trailer brake actuator.

    Very impressed with the quality of build, and the ease of use. Almost makes me want to replace the brake lines more often than necessary.
