    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.

    Great Tool But a Little Pricey (Posted on 3/7/2010)

    While a little bit pricey, this tool makes up for the cost through the elimination of frustration and bad flares. Easy to use and almost idiot proof, I was able to make better flares without even reading the instructions than I ever have before.

    I was surprised, when my new tool arrived, there were no instructions with it. BUT Eastwood responded quickly and e-mailed me a set of instructions immediately. Great going guys!!!

    BUT I was then surprised that the tool didn't come with any information on the types of flares it made and when each would (could) be used. It isn't rocket science, but a little help for novices would be truly appreciated.

    I am building a Clubman kit car, and doing my own brake and fuel lines. This tool produced first rate flares. It has a solid, well-made feel to it, and was much cheaper to buy than its English equivalent. I expect to use it on my next kit car project, probably a Shelby Cobra.

    It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for and this tool is does the job. If you follow the directions you'll have success on the first try. Making sure the tube is lined up properly, it's cut at 90 degrees, there are no burrs, and adding a little anti-seize are critical to a nice flare. Pretty simple. What I really like is the heavy construction. This is a tool that made to last a long time.
    Excellent product and easy to use. (Posted on 1/25/2010)

    This flairing tool works great . If you are replacing your brake lines and want them done correctly and safely with no leaks at the flare end this tool is a must . Price for this uint may seem high but when you are working on brake or fuel lines you want a top of the line product and this is it . HTH
    Good luck on your projects and work Safe !

    This is the best money I've ever spent on a tool. I spent alot of money on cheaper flaring tools, but none would flare stainless to my satisfaction. This tool does!! It paid for itself the first time I used it! Not only does it make excellent double flares in stainless brake line, it only takes seconds. Well worth the money. I could never be confident about forming my own brake lines, with this tool I can. Any one can do it. If you are even thinking about buying this tool,DO IT!! You will never have to my preformed lines again.

    I received this flaring tool a couple of weeks ago and am very impressed with how it works.

    Over the years I have used many different brands of double flaring tools. Some I've had more success with than others but none of them would work with 3/8" or larger tubing. All of them were the standard type with the two bars with serrated holes and a separate die and flaring device. Some wouldn't work at all others worked with small tube but not the larger stuff.

    Recently I decided to install a electric Fuel Pump in my car and needed to replace all of the fuel line to do it. 3/8" was the smallest tubing I could even consider so that's what I used. The U.S. made flaring tool I had just kept pushing to tube out of the clamping device without flaring it and thus ruining the tube.

    After trying everything I could for several days I finally decided to look at the flaring tools I saw in the Eastwood catalog. I settled on this model because quite frankly it was the cheapest model of the high end flaring tools. I was pretty sure that for over $200 it would work better than the $40 units I had been using.

    After using it for a few weeks I can say it is money well spent. The tool is easy to use but more importantly does exactly what is intended to do. And it works perfect every time. Also, it is very obvious once you get the tool that it is made to last a lifetime. So at $200 plus it may seem a bit extreme for the casual user but considering it will last forever it seems well worth it to me.

    There are really only two issues I have with the tool. First is that because the clamps are relatively long you cannot flare very near a bend. In other words if you have a bend just after a fitting you are going to have to flare it and then bend it. This really is a necessity though because if the clamps were shorter the tube would likely push through like the cheap sets I have. Also, I would like to see Eastwood offer another die set (the sets are made to be easily removed) as an option to give you more flaring choices like 37* AN flares.

    Other than that this is like any other high quality tool you buy. Not cheap but in the long run a great value because you will have it forever (if you don't lend it to a friend and never see it again) and it does what you need it to do the first time every time.

    For years I have been unable to produce a decent double flare on 3/16 brake lines. Maybe 1 on 5 was good enough to use. This tool produced an excellent flare on the first try. The next several were also good, both bubble and US. I would offer one suggestion for use with the "plastic coated" pre-made lines. I experienced some slippage in the die resulting in a bad flare. My solution was to rub chalk (blackboard) on the OD where the die contacts tube (old machinest trick), problem solved. I would recommend this tool.
