Flying a Vans RV-10.

More Tools

The time was getting closer where I’d need to fab the tank vent lines and in the future the brake and fuel lines, so I ordered up a tube bender and an end flare tool. The tube bender is for, well, bending tube. The end flare tool flares the end of the tube for fittings. This does the same job as the automotive and home flare tools do, but aviation flares and fittings are 37 degrees which is different.

Take a look HERE on Tim’s site for an example of the bends required and the fittings on the end of the flare.
