The February edition of Classics Monthly Magazine recently tested a range of brake pipe flaring kits and concluded that the magazine’s ‘Test Winner’ and ‘Pro Choice’ accolade be awarded to the Draper Expert 3/16″ SAE Hand-Held Brake Pipe Flaring Tool, Stock No.23312
“The most compact on test both in and out of its storage box. But don’t let that fool you. With the exception of the section for DIN flares, it was easy to follow the instructions for 3/16″ pipe flares. All you need is an adjustable spanner and away you go. The foolproof method of positioning the pipe leaves nothing to chance and ensures consistency. Though small, it created good quality double and single flares you’d be proud of”.
