hilmor: Flare and Swage
The Quick-Engage Flare and Swage, with its streamlined mechanics, makes accurate flaring and swaging a snap, the company said. The tool has a spring-loaded block featuring clothespin-like clamp action to immediately secure tubes ready for flaring or swaging. With ball detents, the yoke can be quickly aligned. The tool also features permanent markings on the block, making tube size identification easy and immediate. With the help of a tube-stop arrow, the correct tube height and position for the perfect flare can also be determined. The Quick-Engage Flare and Swage tool offers a comfort grip, lessening strain on the hand, which allows for making multiple flares or swages with ease.
