Rated 1 out of 5 by from Double flare This can’t do a 3/16 double flare on a common brake line, no matter what I try the tubing always slips thru the tool & you cannot double flare. The hole for the 3/16 is smooth ( no ridges inside). Terrible design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and easy to use. This makes very nice flares on aluminum and Ni-Copp tubing. You will need to have a nice clean cut and deburr the tubing to achieve this. I have not tried this in steel or stainless steel. I would recommend adding to your toolbox. I also purchased the Ridgid 377 for 37 degree flares.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Failure of threads.. I bought this flaring tool a few years ago hoping it would be a quality unit which would last me a lifetime. I do not use the tool that often and today, while flaring a 3/16 brake line, the threads in the main body of the unit gave way and failed completely. Obviously, there is an issue in the metallurgy of the casting. I should add that the tool was well lubed, used sparingly and was never used to flare anything bigger than 3/8 fuel line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Die(s) not included I bought this quality tool to replace brake lines on my truck. I had tried using a "budget" flaring tool from Princess Auto but the double flares turned out wonky. After a refund at PA I grabbed the Ridgid tool at Home Depot, only to discover upon using it, that it does not come with dies. A quick trip to the local Napa for a 3/16" die and I was in business. Good news is, the tool worked great but the fact that it did not come with even a single die was disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool easy to use Tried a few flaring tools from princess auto, but they always managed to get stripped, and delayed the job . Went and bought a ridgid for literary 30 dollars more and never looked Back since. Got to love life time warranty to!
