    How often does 37 degree flars occur? Eastwood has their premium tube flaring tool on sale that does single and double 45 and bubble flares but they want an outrageous 50% more for dies that make 37 degree fittings.
    If it's rare and not seen in classic autos and common mass produced autos and equipment I'm not spending the $100 extra.

    37 degree flare on tubing is mostly used with STAINLESS tube as its not nearly as malleable as standard steel tube , or fairly brittle aluminum tube
    while its a good idea to have the tools its not likely to be frequently in use .
    or put a different way, Ive got both 45 & 37 degree tools (not the best quality) but functional, and I can go years between uses on the 37 degree flare tool.
    and yeah! being a certified tool junky ID love to have a large assortment of tools like the Eastwood brake flare tool and would purchase one in a heart beat if I had the spare cash .

    .
    AN fittings use the 37° flare, but that's not used in your classic autos.

    I never had anything that fancy to use making double flares.
    My Matco Double Flaring kit I have had since 2000.
    Made many new brake lines with it.
    Seems like thousands.
    One of those Hydraulic flaring kits would be nice.
