Solid Brake Flaring Tool!!!!!

#1
I hate making brake lines.
HATE
HATE
HATE IT!!!!


Until today. I finally got to plumbing my Rovers brakes and I bought a kit of the nickle alloy brake lines and this tool

https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-on-car-flaring-tool-for-3-16-tubing.html

This thing worked so well. I never was able to make flares that looked like the ones you get from the store. This tool did it every time. With steel lines, it does wear the tool out after a while, but this alloy was like butter to it. I only found it for 3/16 line. Pretty nice to also use it to flare the ends with metric flare nuts to adapt my Toyota braes to American master cylinders.

Now If I can only learn to cut the ines to the correct length the first time.
