Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb tool for the job I needed a high quality flaring tool for install of Ductless mini-split heating/cooling system. I looked around at all the major brands and even some of the generic brands. Quite a range in quality and pricing. Could have purchased another tool that may have done the job for half the price of the Ridgid No. 345 Flaring tool but decided to bite the bullet and go for the best. Have done several flared tubings and it works fantastic! Very easy to use. The cone basically self-centers in the tubing and then you just tighten the flaring tool onto the tube block and after a few cranks of the lever out comes the perfect flare connection. A great tool for doing the job right. With Ridgid you get a quality product that will do the job...it's as simple as that! Buy this tool and you'll be happily flaring for years to come! Thanks Ridgid!! November 25, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Doesn't hold 3/16" brake line Working on old brake line from a '04 Cavalier. Pipe measures .186". The first 5 or so test flares I did worked fine. Since then, the clamp won't hold the pipe - it just slips down when the press is applied. I am reluctant to make a blanket condemnation; all I can say for sure is, it doesn't work for me. YMMV.
