Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money! Makes life so much easier and does the job right everytime, especially in tight situations like under a truck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. Eye-watering price but I don't know any alternatives. This tool allows you to do "brake line bypass surgery." In other words, for a line that is heavily corroded in a specific area, this tool allows you to splice in a new section and get back on the road.

Questions & Answers

Does this tool work with Nicopp (Cunifer) copper/nickel alloy lines?

Asked by: dougie ps
It works well with standard thickness Nicopp line. However there are some dodgy generic lines out there with thinner walled tubing and those may buckle the flare sideways a bit as well as being less safe to use the thinner line in general.

People are saying to use lube for the flare. What kind of lube should l use? And do you have to use lube?

Asked by: Matt
It comes with a small amount of lube - plenty to do dozens of flares. It is vegetable oil based Red Rubber Lube and if you substitute another lube it should remain Red Rubber Lube for better brake system compatibility. You do need to use lube, on the ends of the die a generous amount and a little on the threads of the die.

Do you not make a 1/4" version? I've looked everywhere online and found nothing. Maybe I'll just buy it and bore it out to 1/4"

Asked by: Eric
Boring it out to 1/4" will not work. The double ended bolt piece would need to be larger for 1/4" line as well.

Will this work on "Poly Armour" steel lines?

Asked by: Rick
Yes I've made a few flares on the AGS Poly Armor line with this. It did not slip out as another reply suggested, though I made sure the die was dry and the line clean and tightened it enough. I also marked the line where it entered the die with a marker to be sure it wasn't sliding backwards during the flaring.

Will this work on factory Toyota lines? The auto parts store one can't flare the lines. It pushes them out of the vise.

I already own this tool. I ended up stripping the threads on the main guide bolt. Is there a way to order that particular part individually?
