|XJJack||Lokks like you need the 345-DL for double frares to do brake lines. Would be nice if the top one did doubles.|

|Jakesteramalamajama||Either of those would work great for hard line. Just make sure they come with the double flaring attachment to flare the end back in. You have to do that for brakeline or it'll crack.|

I use one similar to the 345.. Mine has two clamps on the bas and a puller looking thing that resembles a pitman arm puller..
It works really nice.. any flairing tool will work as long as it does double flares. Its not really rocket science.. Get a few pieces of different size tubing to practice on and start cutting and flaring. when you feel your confindent enough then do your brake lines..
It should only take you three or four times to be confindent enough..

|POPE||I've always used the $3 parts house special. Never really had any problems. You sure as hell don't want to get in a hurry. I did all the hard line on my 14 using it and didn't have any problems.|

|bertha||Wow that is alot nicer than the one I used Mine was a Napa special and it worked fine. Little harder for the double flare but it worked out great. Installed my new Wilwood proportioning valve and my brakes have never been better Go for it, and when your done send it to me and I will store it for you (and then finish my Jeep project ) Did I type that out loud?|

Brake Line Flaring Tool?
I need to make some custom brake lines and I was wondering which flaring tool you have used. In the past, I have used the cheap $10 tools, but they don't work. I have heard to use the Ridgid brand from Home Depot. Which model number are you using?
Here is a link the the Ridgid flaring tools:
