I've been using this tool on type L,K copper for the last 10 years and don't understand the trouble people are experiencing. Do it yourselfers please stay away from professional products/jobs. Couple of easy steps to get a good result every time. 1. when cutting pipe/tubing do not force cutting tool. it will ovalise the end. 2. MUST deburr inside of pipe/tube. The best and ONLY proper way is with a machinist's DEBURRING tool 3. make sure block jaws are clean and grease free. 4. add a bit of oil on cone. 5. flare away. If you screw this up please stick to drywalling and painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!
