where to buy a SAE 45* flare tubing seat cutter?
does any1 know where to buy a 45* flare tubing seat cutter as used in production of wheel cylinders, oil and fuel line fittings... haven't had any luck paging through Mcmaster,rutland and NNT...
I may end up having one custom made, but I know some1 must sell them! maybe I just don't know what to look under???
If you've tried McMaster and maybe MSC, I'd have one made.
I've had custom shaped end mills made and they're not all that expensive.... Yes Paris, relative is just that, relative to the cost of other tooling.
Tell your tool maker you want to start with a standard double ended end mill and have him grind yours on both ends of the mill.......... it's cheaper grinding the same profile on both ends than having two separate end mills made.
If you design your cutter with a pilot guide like a counter-bore tool, you may even be able to get away using it on a nice deburring machine.... deburring machine is what I call Bridgeport mills.
Many times a brass insert is cut with the inverted flare seat and pressed into a bored recess in the part. I know that master cylinders are made that way. That type of part can be made on a lathe.
How many of these parts are you making?
If you are doing a bunch, like Dugg said, a custom cutter may be the way to go.
You'd try one of these guys who do custom tooling.
( I never used these particular people, I just googled "custom tooling"
Here is a company I found that made a tool called a "cone cutter", this one is a 10* but it looks like it's the right idea.
IIRC, rutland and enco offer custom services as well.
I'm not 100% sure this is it ... but it sure sounds like it.

Good find. :thumbup:
thanks every1 for your input, and GMC, YES!!! thats the tool I am looking for!
I plan on using this tool to make custom one off fittings as well as using it to repair hard to find and expensive fittings and parts on antique tractors, cars and trucks...
Dugg, ever use a "3 axis" cnc bridgeport? them are mighty expensive deburing tools! your right tho, they aint that ridged of a machine, someday I will buy something nicer like a HAAS VMC....
thanks again guys!
