Re: Brake flaring

I think you can buy a pretty good flaring tool for less than $100. Mine is not as nice as the one pictured above, but I've had good luck flaring SS lines up to 3/8". My hands were a little sore afterwards due to the pressure needed to work SS lines vs. steel lines. I can't remember where I got my tool but it didn't come from Harbor Freight.
