Q: Hello, I am interested in your flaring tools - in particularly Part#'s 04-00959, 04-00960, 04-00961
Can you tell me the difference between a #2 and a #5? Flush vs. Round? (which part) What size washers can be flared with these? (recommended) Can I use these for washers with an OD of .75(#10)?
A-Lock units come in a few diameters. The #2 and #5 are the sizes we offer. The #2 head diameter is 11/32", and shank dia of .167". The #5 stud head diameter is 9/16", and shank dia of .265". We offer grommet flaring tools for both the #2 or #5 studs. The #2 tools are for flush head studs, and #5 for both flush and round head studs. The tools are only recommended for A-Lock grommets, so we have no information if they will work with washers or not.
