A valuable addition to any toolset 25 October 2023

This versatile hand-held brake-pipe flaring tool from Laser tools (part number 8641) is designed to effortlessly form both SAE single and double flares in 3/16 inch (4.75mm) copper and cupro-nickel brake pipes. Its compact design makes it the perfect choice for on-vehicle use, fitting snugly in tight spaces such as engine bays or wheel arches during brake pipe replacements or repairs. 

Not only is the tool suitable for on-vehicle use, but it is also versatile enough for off-vehicle applications. This makes it a valuable addition to any workshop or toolset, providing flexibility in brake-pipe flaring tasks. To ensure smooth operation, a high-pressure punch grease is also included, specifically formulated to lubricate the friction surfaces of the punch and tool.

With its user-friendly design, professional mechanics and DIY enthusiasts can create professional-grade flares and its compact size allows it to be used directly on the vehicle, even in tight and hard-to-reach areas, ensuring efficient and accurate flare formation, making brake pipe replacements or repairs easy.
