When I think flaring, I think tube or pipe. What do you mean by flaring sheet steel? how thick are you talking about 1/8, 3/16?

Oh, do you mean a Flair tool to flair a hole in sheet metal? Jet busy with the lathe or you can buy them from these guys MITTLER BRO.

flaring sheet metal

im not positive that i know what you are talking about. but take a piece of hard wood,(oak,maple) using a hole saw,cut a hole the size you want,in the wood,sand a bevel in 1 side of wood,take a socket about 1/8 in smaller than the flare you want,put everything in a hold down clamp,and start beating the flare. (you may have to heat the metal with a torch. hope this gets you going in the right direction. if you have a lathe,it would be easier too turn the flare.

If you're talking about dimple dies, which is the closest thing I can think of from what you're saying, the best I've seen are from Trick Tools. I believe their website is vanzandt.com, but google Trick Tools & I'm sure you'll find it.

If this is what you want, there are a few threads with pics over on Pirate. I also have one of their catalogs & can give you more details if I'm on the right track.

Nice

Thanks for the ideas. Being that I dont have a lath im out of luck there and the dies are pretty spendy. I was looking through a tool catalog and found bearing race presses. Im going to try thoughs. I'll let you guys know how it works and looks when I get there. Should be starting in a month or so.
