     Over the years I've had a number of flaring tools, some of them cheap and mostly junk, and some not so cheap, but still not entirely satisfactory.  A few months ago I bought another tool from Eastwood, it's part no. 25304, and you mount it in a vice and then use the lever on the tool to compress a die onto the tubing.  Used it to help a friend put disk brakes on a VW bug that he and his son are re-doing, and it worked better than anything I've ever had.  It's not cheap  -  current price is $219.99 --- but I got it on sale I think for about $160.  WEll worth the money.
