i'm sure you'll get a zillion variations in responses, but I've 
simplified my rebuilds.... I simply pick up coated steel brake lines at 
my local FLAPS.

Cut the ends off (to remove the pre-crimped nuts)   Now I DO have a nice 
hand powered hydraulic flanger. so bubbles, doubles, single flairs are 
dirt simple. The beauty of this flare tool is I can do it on the car in 
tight places and get near perfect flairs in seconds.  So many will tell 
you to only use 'conifer' (a copper alloy?) which is easier to bend. But 
even the little cheap FLAPS nut cracker looking benders do a decent 
enough job...is all I use.

holy crap!...just did a quick google... man they have gone up in price! 
I only paid around $125 6-8 years ago

...anyway....if you can afford it... a GREAT tool ...NFI...just very 
glad I bought it!


That is the all up kit...does 7-10 differnt types amd multiple sizes of 
each. They do make a small kit
