Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool

Professional Brake Tubing Flaring Tool

Product Review (submitted on March 28, 2010):

I tried several of the lower priced double flaring tools that clamp onto the tubing using soft galvanized dies with little serrated teeth and was never able to find one that would hold 3/8 steel fuel line tight enough to successfully form a double flare. Additionally, the little serrations always bite into the tubing leaving nasty little grooves behind. The smooth hardened steel dies on this tool easily hold the tubing during all flaring operations without damaging or deforming the tube. Definitely worth the money, makes perfect flares every time with very little setup time and prep work.

Only downside to this tool is that it must be used in a vise (it takes too much force to turn the handle for the tool to be used on the vehicle) whereas some of the more expensive hydraulic tools look like they can be used closer to your project. This is one of highest quality and most well thought out tools I have seen in a long time, the tool is a pleasure to use.
