|sunsetdart||I agree.....Eastwoods tools are junk and most break or don't work at all. They do all come from China.........BUT!!!...there chemicals like paints and such are very good and I do use them.......|

Forget about that overpriced Eastwood stuff!!! A good Rigid or Imperial Eastman (http://imperialeastman.com/) is the way to go. If you want Eastwood quality and a for lot less money, Harbor Fright has virtually the same thing.
I have a Rigid 37* "kit" and a 40 year old I-E 45* "kit" that is still working like new.
Yes, Eastwood does have some good tools and unique items, but for the most part are really not worth the money for mostly Chinese knock offs.

The Rigid flaring tool is what you want for double flares.

Flaring Tool ?
Hey Gene, Don't know anything about the Eastwood tool. I did buy a real good double flaring kit in the recent past. I got aggravated with the numerous junky flaring tools I owned(they work halfassed on single flare copper tube and not worth a dammed on double flare steel tube) I bought a 345/150 Ridgid kit from Graingers for $111.45, it works real good. After I made a few double flares with it, I threw all that other junk in the trash can without a tear. nolan

Anyone purchase and use the flaring tool that Eastwood Company sells for $197.00 ?
