Brake AN Fittings

I need to make stainless lines for a application that has all bubble flare brake fittings. I am having quite abut of trouble getting the bubble flares in the stainless tubing, but i can do the single 45 AN flare. So does anyone know where i can get AN bubble flare fittings?

Thanks

Brendan

You said you were gonna do it and here you are. I do not think there is such a thing as an AN bubble flare. Bubble flares (also called DIN or ISO flares) are used primarily on metric applications. Also, the standard flare to use with AN fittings is 37*, not 45*.these guys have some fittings,http://www.fedhillusa.com/pages/709976/index.htm, so do these folks,http://www.classictube.com/catalog.asp
I'd try earls and russell also. good luck.

As stated, do not use a 45 degree flare tool with AN fittings, IT WONT WORK. You must have a flare tool that does 37 degree single flare for AN fittings. IMO AN fittings are the only way to go wit SS tubing, it's a breeze.

Are you trying to use the bubble flares on your project to be different? I don't think it is really going to be worth the trouble that you are going to put yourself through to find all of the fittings. You can use a 45* double flare,(go back and read the thread you started a few weeks back about that subject, look here:Flaring Stainless, and have it look the same as if you used the bubble flares. And the fittings are easy to find in SS. Just what components are you trying to plumb that require bubble flares.
