All right ... I give up. I bought a flare tool to double flare my own hard brake lines. It cost me about 40 bucks, so I don't think it's a total piece of crap, but damned if I can get a decent flare ... they end up all off center and lumpy, and I KNOW it will leak. I've ruined two brake lines trying to master it. So, what am I doing wrong? I cut the lines with a pipe cutter, then debur them with a drill bit and a fine file ... but when I crank down on the die, it somehow gets off centered and doesn't make an even crown. Is there a trick? I lost the instructions which specify how much pipe should be sticking through the hole, but I experimented with various lengths and STILL haven't been able to get it right. Someone please enlighten me.
