Product Description

The Craftsman 45-deg Double Flaring Tool Makes a Secure, Sealed Connection

The Craftsman 45-deg double flaring tool is built for serious mechanics. Recommended for Bundy tubing and other annealed soft steel tubing with 3/16 to 1/2 inch outer diameter, this tool makes single or double flares in soft metals, enabling you to make a more secure and sealed connection.

This 45-deg double flaring tool is fabricated of steel yoke and swivel-type hardened steel and features a chrome-finished flaring cone. The ball thrust bearing in the flaring cone minimizes friction, making operation easier, and the bar provides a positive grip on the tubing. Complete with a plastic tool case, it's protected from the elements, while backed by the Craftsman Forever Guarantee, it's a tool you can count on for life.

Nicely built and works well

After reading some of the reviews, I had some reservations about purchasing this flaring tool.

But after comparing this item with others at various retail stores I found this to be of much higher quality. Most others were low quality, imported tools that had an insubstantial feel and just looked cheap. I decided on the Craftsman set and have not been disappointed.

I've made several flares with different types and thicknesses of tubing and have not experienced any of the issues that others have mentioned. I did not break any adapter shafts nor did I have any incidents with the tubing slipping out of the flaring bar. The instruction sheet clearly states that the rod of the yoke can be used as a lever to tighten the wing nuts which I did. Even without the extra tightening, the flaring bar seemed to have a strong grip on the tubing. All of the flares I've made have come out as well as expected and I have no regrets about purchasing this item.

Although this set is more expensive than the imported brands, the quality, performance and lifetime warranty far outweigh the additional cost.

45 degree Double Flaring Tool
Nice kit but the stems on the flare adapters are quite weak. On the very first use of the 1/4 " adapter the stem snapped off. We took a close look at this and can see that there is an inherent weakness at the shoulder of the stem which occured during the manufacturing process. I do hope that a stronger version is in the making. It is also possible that this is a defective adapter. I could not find a replacement part online as the item # or the Craftsman # did not work in the search field. I hope to find the purchase receipt and get a replacement in the store for the same item.

Saved the Day

I bought a cheap flaring tool where the 3/16" tubing kept slipping backward. I was doing this job on my back and almost gave up but saw this at Sears and thought I'd give it one more shot. The machining on this tool is beautiful. The tube mounting section closes on the tube more precisely than the cheap versions and the knurled inside kept the small, tough line from slipping. Don't make my mistake of going with a cheap tool when doing a job where precision counts. I never write reviews but I'm so grateful for the time and money this tool saved me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Tough - made in USA

This is not a cheap import that bends like some do, which mis-shapes the flares (read reviews on the auto parts chain store flare tools!).

I would recommend this product to a friend.

High Quality, great looking set!

This set immediately impresses as being of high quality, and easily created neat and clean double flares. A must-have tool if you are working on brake lines. The only thing missing is a tube cutter, which you must buy separately.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Double Flare Tool. Made in USA.

Great tool! Works exactly as it should and made a perfect double flare on my first attempt. I tried using a flaring tool from an auto parts store before getting the Craftsman. The yoke screw bent after making a few flares on 3/16 in. brake line resulting in off center flares. The Craftsman tool cost twice as much but is well worth it and makes a perfect double flare every time. Being made in USA is a plus. I would be nice if Craftsman made a Metric ISO Bubble Flare kit. I would buy it in a heartbeat. Most American cars made since the early 90's use ISO bubble flares on their brake lines (in some cases both double and ISO bubble flare on the same line) so it is becoming more necessary to have an ISO bubble flare kit as well.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Works as expected, made in the USA

I bought this double flaring tool after an inferior tool purchased at a local auto parts store failed to produce a single correct flare. The quality of the double flares produced with this tool are equal to or better than the flares on store bought brake lines. Sure, it was twice as expensive, but that's money well spent because the tool worked as expected and has a lifetime replacement warranty.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Made in America.

My Van sprung a leak in the 1/4" brake line to the rear, I went with the $25 ************** tool first plus an inverted union and a few feet of 1/4" brake line to splice the old line with the replacement from the a.b.s. box back. You get what you pay for, the tool bent and wouldn't hold the old line in place at all, plus one of the wingnuts broke, managed to only get a single flare out of the new line. This Craftsman tool is solid, thicker, looks better than the ************** tool and most important it works. This tool allowed me to press a new 45 degree flare on the old line (while still installed on the van) with no problems at all, flaring the replacement line was gravy. It's great to see Craftsman offering amercan made tools again. What good does a cheap tool do you if it doesn't do what it's supposed to? This tool works, I Recommend it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
