|The industry standard Rol-Air® is the choice of professionals. Flares soft copper, aluminum and brass tubing. The faceted, hard chrome coated cone rolls out perfect 37° flares above the die block, and then automatically burnishes the flare face while maintaining the original wall thickness at the base of flare. New slip-on yoke permits use in tight quarters. Satin chrome and black finish. Flares tube sizes:3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2", & 5/8" O.D. tubing. Not recommended for stainless steel.|
works great and makes nice smooth flairs. needs about 1.5 of straight tube before the first bend.
#507-FB ROL-AIR FLARING TOOL
I love this tool. Works great, flares perfectly and easy to use.
worked nicely on 3003 0 soft tubing, which easily forms a curve without a tube bender
I bought this primarily for aluminum lines, and it works great and produces beautiful flares. However, its a little rich given its material capability limitations. If I had to spend that much again, Id skip this and for $10-15 more, get the Ridgid 41162 Model 377 which can handle up to 0.035 wall stainless steel and cover all my needs with one tool.
I bought this because itI says the dies do not score. Not the case with my 3003 AL 1/4 tubing. It leaves concentric rings embossed in the tubing where the dies clamp the tubing in place. Same as my cheap summit racing tool!
