Ridgid Flaring Tools
Flaring tools are used to shape soft metal pipes, like copper, to specific sizes for different fittings. RIDGID® Flaring Tools help shape flares in brass, aluminum and even mild steel for a variety of applications. These tools are used in brake lines and also for various plumbing jobs.
It's likely that if you're going to be shaping flares, you will need other tools to complement the process. Ridgid pipe/tubing cutters help you cut custom pipe lengths of all varieties of metal tubing, including copper and brass. You may also want to invest in a Ridgid vise to help stabilize the pipe for cutting and shaping your flares.
If you need to produce 45-degree flares or 37-degree flares, Ridgid flaring tools have options for you. Simply dial the head after fixing the tubing inside the bar and turn the handle to insert the flare cone gradually into the pipe. Our customized screw handle makes this process smoother than other standard flare handles. Our flaring tools come in a variety of sizes for standard pipe widths including 1/2, 3/4 and 5/8 inches.
Ratcheting flaring tools are also used to cinch the end of a copper or soft metal pipe to match smaller fittings. These tools are also smooth and easier to operate. A clutch will release automatically when the flare is complete. For any home improvement, construction or commercial project, Ridgid plumbing wrenches can help secure and tighten fittings for almost any size pipe.
Whether you are an home improvement DIY expert or a seasoned plumbing or automotive professional, Ridgid flaring tools will help ensure that your fittings will fit securely. Our tools come in standard widths to make sure they will fit most copper and soft metal pipes for popular applications like water and brake line maintenance and installation.
