Default brke line


There isn't much difference in flaring the nickel copper line. What you will find is that it is far more flexible and less prone to kinking when bending. It may be more expensive but, every advantage it has makes it well worth the extra money.

Default Two suggestions.....

Get the best flaring tool you can find..... the pro models, turret type, at Eastwood are worth every cent in the tubing saved avoiding bad flares..... or finding leaks a week later.

Second suggestions..... be kind and forgiving of the idiot who flares the exactly measured and prebent tube lenght only to discover he forgot to insert the fitting on the pipe first!!!!!!

Final comment..... Stainless Steel lines are best, expensive, shinny and much much harder to work with and totally unforgiving.
