    I never flared brake lines before so this was new to me. I purchased this tool along with Eastwoods OE 3/16 hard brake line. I made several double flares that turned out good with no leaks. You must make sure everything is lined up straight and centered in the tool and use never-seez or brake fluid to lube everything up and it will do the job. The clamp bars are spring steel and when you clamp the brake line in the tool turn the wing nuts until the two bars touch and don't turn any more as you don't want to strip the threads or break anything. The wing nuts were not flat on the bottom sort of crude looking but that don't give you any problem tighting the bars. This tool is fine if you are not making a lot of flares as it is a slow process. These kind of flaring tools do put ugly grooves where the tool grips the brake line though the nut will hide these grooves in service but it is a place for rust to start.

    I had a lot of trouble aligning the tubing to prevent splitting the flare.
    The biggest problem, however, is the quality. One of the wing nuts on the bar clamp stripped out after six flares so I had to run down to Auto Zone to get a new one (at half the cost of the Eastwood unit) to finish the brake job installation.
    Sorry guys it's not a good buy.

    Depends what material you use. I buy a quality line from a local vendor, mild steel made in germany, have similar flaring set (a cheaper one from harbor freight) but so far have not had a single leak. Make sure you have a nice flat, lubricated cut. If you have a strong fingers yet cannot shape the line by hand then the steel is too hard.
    could not make one flare. (Posted on 9/7/09)
