45 degree flaring tool

If any of you guys ever tried to use a cheap flaring tool you'll
know what i'm talking about. It sucks. What's a good brand.

KD is what we use and theyre ok until they get old

i always use pliers to crank the wing nuts tight on them.

so they grab the tubing good.

AN type fittingd use 37 degree flares others use 45 single or double flares depending on the fitting. I like the tool Snap On sells but the ridged is also a nice tool if you are going to spend the money.

I have a Snapon and a Rigid and they both work well but mostly I use the one I got out of granddads shop. It is about a inch thich and doesn't rely on serrations to hold the tube and doesn't crush the tube any. No name and have never seen another.

What 47chevy said. Mastercool all the way. Not cheap, but worth every penny.
