Cheap processing, does not produce a proper double bell.

Cone tool does not fall straight down. The cone wobbles and the die is not pressed with an even force, causing the tube to flex on one side instead of rotating evenly. I wouldn't recommend it if you are a double blitzer. I tried 10 flashes and 9 came out asymmetrical. Only 1 good flash out of 10 attempts.

Don't waste money.

This tool is rubbish. The clip doesn't hold the leash, so the leash just slides through. I also think this tool was used and returned before I bought it because it was a bit scratched and oily and some of the coating was peeling off. I went to Autozone and rented their dual torch tool and it worked great.

  • Good product for the price

Full of junk for brake flare tools

As mentioned, does not hold the hose when the flare is pressed in. The hose goes straight through the instrument. I just bought this because my other one was at work and at home I just needed to drop a few lines and I couldn't even finish it with him. I used many of these tools as a 30 year old auto mechanic and couldn't even make a usable bell with this tool. Better to spend a few more euros and buy a different brand.

It works, but you have to make it work.

Packaging is good (plastic case) and seems well finished. The weakest point are the wing nuts that hold the tube in place. Wing nuts are made of cast metal and then machined. The thread came loose on the 1st wing nut when I tried to hold the 3/16 pipe after the 3rd try, the 2nd wing nut (less pressure on it) took about 30 minutes. I think the thread is metric because I had to run to the hardware store for nuts and bolts to finish the job.

  • Excellent overall specifications
  • Lack of thought

Good pay for running your own car/truck.

Good return if you only work on your own stuff. Relatively cheap, which is great. But it seems cheaply built. As you progress to double flaring, you must be careful not to tighten the tool evenly. The matrix stays stuck in the line even after shrinking and this is a problem in the long run as you have to move it back and forth to remove it. So if you make brake lines every day, maybe invest in something else. It's worth it for working on your own stuff.

Don't buy junk if you're running an OEM vehicle or traditional steel tubing. Revain's steel line or OEM steel tubing is harder and will wear down the flare tool teeth that hold the tubing to the yolk. You'll probably get a reasonably good flash and then spend your time with this tool. Better use a rented tool from Autozone, the yolk metal is much stronger and you return it when it's worn out. Your best bet, though, is get a professional $200 flare tool and plug it into your workbench. ISSUING…

Poor Quality!: Brake Flaring Tools

Scrap. You get what you pay for! Good luck trying to get a decent double flash when you buy this crap. The only decent part of this set is the pipe cutter. Everything else is Chinese junk! I've spent 2 days trying to make at least a decent dual flare with no success. I bought another double torch tool for twice the price and was able to get a perfect torch in less than 2 minutes. Here are two photos to show you the quality of flaring I was able to do with this tool versus a tool I just…

  • Delivery was very fast
  • Poor Instructions

Does not match!

I had to flare one (1) 1/4" brake line at each end. The vise has holes for this size but is so loose it doesn't even grip the tube. The tube just slips out of pipe OD measured with caliper is .250" which is true. 1/4" hole in vise when closed and fully tightened is .290" on same caliper. Hole is .040" too big! All other sizes in the vise have the same problem! I have a flaring tool that does single flaring so it can't be used to make brake lines with a 1/4" hole. "Hoseing is .210" or .040"…
