eastwood brake tubing flaring tool
« on: August 19, 2015, 07:07:02 PM »
I've had this tool for a couple years now and it is some of the best money I've spent on tools.  i hadn't worked on a brake line in a least a year and i in just a couple minutes made 2 perfect flares with no effort. I've made a couple dozen flares and haven't had a bad one and i don't have to rely on pre-flared lengths either. I know posi has this and recommended it to me so i'm recommending it to you.

I enjoy running brake lines because of this tool, it's next to impossible to make a bad flare, and it's super fast.
I see the link you posted has it on sale, plus another 10% off. That's a very good price for such a well made tool.

Awesome tool, Used Ian's extensively when I SASed my truck.

My one gripe is that you have to bench flare the lines, so if you had a very long line on a vehicle that was broken or needed to be reflared, you need to remove the line from the vehicle, you can not flare on the vehicle.  I tried, didn't work. Ended up using a my traditional double flare tool.  Otherwise, great piece of equipment.

It is the one and only drawback of the tool, otherwise, it's the bee's knee's!
