Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool

Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool

Product Review (submitted on April 20, 2010):

You can feel the quality in this tool. Lots of steel, beefy construction, nice blow molded case. Weighs probably 10 pounds. I had never used a flare tool before, but found the Eastwood on sale for $160, which makes it more competitive with the nicer bar-style units.

The very first flares I made, while practicing on some short lengths of tubing, looked PERFECT. I followed the instructions exactly (including anti-seize) and used high quality tubing. It takes only about 30 seconds to make a double flare start to finish once you get the hang of it.

It's not cheap, but you certainly get what you pay for. The primary safety system on your car is not the place to cut dollars and cents. The complete lack of frustration during use, not having to do flares over again, speed of use, and quality results make this an excellent buy.
