TF5A Double Flaring Tool Set

The TF5A Double Flaring Tool is a complete set of the various tools needed to make flares in soft steel, copper and a variety of other metals. The capacity is from 3/16 to 1/2 inch outside diameter of the tubes. The flare angle is 45 degrees. This tool has the capacity to make double or single flares. A single flare is just the end of the tube spread out, so it looks like a small funnel. A double flare is first a single flare, then the end is folded over and pushed into the funnel. The result is a double sided flare. A carrying case is included, and the suggested retail price is £33.4 as of November 2010.
