    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.

    I restore cars for a hobby.
    Over the years, I've been using the typical flaring tool with limited success. No mater what I would do to square the end, It would take me 3 tries to get the the flair straight and looking just OK. By this time the tube was to short or I forgot to put the nut on the tube!!! Either way they sucked.

    I finally bit the bullet and bought this tool since life is to short.

    This is the best tool I've ever owned!!!!!!!

    All I want to do all is flare tubing it works so easy and the flairs look so good.

    Please look past the dollar amount and just buy it. You will never regret it.

    Thanks again for coming up with a better way!!

    I took a chance and purhased this tool to replace my old flare tools and WOW... It took longer to cut the material to length than to do the flares...

    I do tubing kits for restorations and I did my forst kit 16 inverted flares in less time an better quality than it took me to cut the 8 sections...

    Very easy to use and easy on the hands...

    Fantastic Tool

    I’ve worked with professional grade plumbing flaring tools before, and I can tell you that the Eastwood flaring tool is simply unbelievable! The stainless lines were always very hard for me to get right with the plumbing tools, but every flare has turned out to be perfect with this Eastwood tool. The price is a little rough for a hobbyist like me, but I figure the value comes back in not having to rework leaky connections.

    I'm no expert but "This tool rocks!"
    I used this professional brake tubing flaring tool for my 3/16" stainless steel brake lines and am amazed how smooth and simple this tool works. Perfect flairs each time. The key is to make sure the line has been prepped correctly before the use of this tool.
    The only weakness IMO is the clamp. I overtightened it and it snapped at the pivoting hinge point. Either there is not enough strength in the material used or I was Conan the Barbarian when it snapped. Should have been made of steel.
    Eastwood came right through and replaced it in no time. I would recommend it to anyone who is frustrated with cheaper hand held kits.

    I've used the simple kind with the screw handle but these are much easier to use. Directions could be a little clearer on which die to use(as they have 2 different ends on each block), but after figuring out which side of the block to use, this tool worked like a champ. I used it on 3/16 auto brake line and no leaks- first try.

    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!

    I haven't tried to flare a brake line in nearly 30 years and from what I remember, the results back then weren't good.

    Fast forward to my current project. I could take the 'easy' way out and buy pre-flared, pre-cut lines from NAPA, but I didn't like the idea of making a bunch of loops at the ends of my brake lines to allow me to avoid cutting them to length and flaring them.

    I read on ffcars.com that this tool was hands down the best one available. It was a little pricey, but making perfect flares is a dead simple process.

    The included directions are not great, but the YouTube video is enough to get you going if you stop and think about it for a minute.

    Remember that there are two sides to each sized die.. For brakes, you want the 45% (angled) side.. Ensure top and bottom are the same. The other side is JIC (not common).

    Rotate the hub to the flat die to line everything up, then rotate to step 1 (3/16 for brakes), pull, then rotate to step 2 and pull again (harder this time).

    Done - perfect flares - and no sloppy loops in your line.

    price can be off-putting for some, but use this tool once, and you will wonder how you did with-out it.
    beautiful flares and super quick.
