Has anyone used the Flaremaster brake flaring tool – and is it worth the $ ? How does the hydraulic action work – is that for the clamping process or the flaring process?
(Administrator – I’d like to see the Flaremaster in action in one of the product streaming videos. 😀 )
I have another brand double-flaring set (that was not cheap) which works GREAT for all sizes EXCEPT 3/16″ tubing. There simply is not enough surface area on the 3/16″ tubing for the clamp to get a grip and the tubing pushes thru during the first (rollover) flaring step. I’ve tried lesser sets and found the same difficulty for 3/16″ , too.
