Brake flares

It appears that the brake flares are DIN, is that so? Can one use just regular old bubble flare tool or must one buy/rent one of the fancy turret style flare tools that make official DIN flares?

I used the premade ones and bent them to fit, and they worked okay. Until a couple of weeks ago, when one of them burst at a rusty spot. I bought some of the Cunifer brake line material, a few handfuls of fittings, and the fancy flaring tool. After flipping around in the driveway for a while, I think I an free of the curse of steel brake lines.

The 007C tool makes SAE and DIN. You can buy the basic tool and add whatever dies you want.

The SAE/double (inverted/45degree) flare and the DIN/ISO bubble flare. We will refer to them as SAE or DIN flare.
This is what I use: http://www.otctools.com/products/bub...aring_tool_kit

Alright so if you make a bubble flare and use a regl'r old 10 mm nut on your connection, will it seal correctly?

I don't know about the "bubble," but I did learn that the SAE 45 degree flare is used for the DIN female fittings.

I haven't had any issues with DIN/ISO bubbles made with that OCT flaring tool when connected to my calipers and flex lines. You do have to use nuts designed for DIN/ISO bubble flares.
