This is in my top 5 of the best investments I made in buying an automotive tool. I actually look forward to flaring lines now!
View the videos, it works just as easy and quick!
 
Scott,
  THANK YOU, for this new "tools" section!

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

I have heard nothing but incredible reviews of this tool. Next time I get heavy into tubing, I will probably take the plunge myself.

Also of note: There is a 37 degree head available as well for an add-on. Then one can do AN flares.

Great to hear!
  Now go to your nearest parts store and get some lengths of various brake and fuel line sizes, you'll be "playing" with this flaring tool for a while after seeing how easy and how perfect each flare is. If possible, give an update afterwards.

Glad to hear it works as advertised, I would have been embarrassed if you received a bad unit, seeing how I praised it so much. You'll run out of tubing long before you run out of smiles.
