If you properly cut, set and ream the tubing as well as use a few drops of oil on the dies and the point of the flaring tool it will work perfectly and for quite a long time.
I suggest this kit to anyone doing double flares.
I bought this tool to repair a blown-out brake line on my 14 year-old truck. I also purchased a spool of zinc-coated steel tubing and fittings to do the job. Anyhow, I was able to make decent flares with the mild-steel tubing. One problem though is that when you gronk the clamp down onto the tubing, the two halves of the clamp piece are not exactly lined up perfect, which can affect the accuracy of the flare. After completing the repair, I ordered SS replacement (pre-bent) lines for the whole truck. One of the lines simply would not feed through the little nooks and crannies in one piece so I decided I would cut it at a convenient spot, feed it through, then splice the ends together with my flaring tool. The flare tool did not work, and after removing the tubing from the clamp I realized that the SS tubing flattened all of the gnurling on the clamp such that it will no no longer hold even mild-steel tubing tightly to make flares. So now the clamp is trash, at least for 1/4' tubing. I will note that the box does say inside (very small print) that it is for mild/light metals, so it is pretty much my fault. Otherwise, this is a pretty decnt tool. It got me out of a jam, so I was pretty happy, just perturbed that it wasn't strong enough to do stainless.
Word of advice, because it took me a little while to figure this out. To make a double flare, you need to press it with the supplied die to form the bottom side of the flare, then back it off, and remove the die, and press it again, with just the conical end on the tool. Once I figured that out, it does a nice job.
Moreover, halfway through the job i discovered that I also needed to make bubble flares.... and a quick youtube search showed that you can make decent bubble with this tool by using it upside down. No leaks so far.

Good quality and works flawless only complaint is the adapters go all over inside the case because the spaces for them are too large and don't hold them in place at allPublished 8 days ago by jefferson cole
Every flare I produce with this is off center, followed all directions. Used lubrication, a vice to steady it, chamfer/deburrer... every single flare is off center.Published 24 days ago by Rebabal

Flaring tool worked OK, but most brake line you get now is metric and this tool tended to slip a little on the metric tubing. Worked fine on SAE but the metric was not so goodPublished 1 month ago by owl9704a
