This tool is designed to flare 1/8" tubing for primer lines. Leaves no ridges or marks on tubing, complying with aircraft requirements. Furnished with 37° flaring punch. The slip-on yokes of most flaring tools also fit this block.
Works well. I used SAE J533 to check my flares against. Required a bit of experimentation to work. I found putting a small chamfer on the ID of the tube makes a better flare.
Worked great to repair a 1/8 steel primer line. Would have been nice to include instructions with the tool,.
Excellent. Inexpensive, rapid delivery and perfect for that one or two time use. No need to buy an expensive multiple size kit for specific 1/8 AN fittings.
Worked well for what it is. 1/8 copper tubing is rather small, so it takes a delicate touch with a hammer. As others have said, it would be nice if it came with instructions.
This item works fine and does the job. It does leave marks on the copper tubing from the two pieces of the forming block similar to injection molding from plastic parts - no big deal, you will have to scrape it off, it does come off fairly easily.
The leaves no ridges not true . A little lube helps with that , after a few attempts you can figure it out over all not a bad tool .
This tool did the trick. You have to be a bit careful to tap out a concentric flare, and you may need to smooth out the sides of the tube where the tool clamps onto it, but it worked well.
Did not make a good flair on copper primer line
Expensive for what it is and not user friendly at all. Leaves a HUGE margin for error when using. 3 tries and 3 different results...
Really poor, having to hammer the center flaring stem to widen it to fit in the pipe clamp. The size of 1/8 inch is addressed in another proper toolset, which clamps the center flare post against the clamp for the pipe being flared.
