Eastwood's brake line flare tool
Just in case anyone is thinking of buying one of these, they are on sale now on Eastwood's site for 219. I just found the same thing on their ebay store for 199 and free shipping, so I got that one. Ordered on Tuesday and it is here now.
These make any kind of flare in any pipe. Our trucks use what's known as a DIN flare. This tool makes those perfectly.
With one brake pipe costing as much as $60 it is cost effective for those who replace a lot of brake lines. Does clutch and hydraulic lines as well. Comes with 4 dies.
I compared it with the FedHill brake tool and it seems to be on par with that. I don't think it's Chinese I think it's made in the EU somewhere.
