Get Prepped

The first step in this process involves preparing the end of the tubing that you are going to flare. Cutting tubing often leaves a ridge on the inside of the tube. Using the ridge reamer, ream the inside surface of the tube until it is nice and smooth. You may not be able to clean the tube to its original diameter because the cutting process often squeezes the diameter down a little.

Reaming the inside of the tube.

If you have a fine metal file handy or an outside ridge reamer, you may want to just go ahead and clean up the outside edge a little. This will not affect the function of the flare but will make the finished product look pretty!
