What is this tool used for? (pics)


Found it in my basement while cleaning out. The holes are threaded inside and are marked from 3/16 to 5/8.

Just another tool that's indispensible for what it's made to do, but totally useless for anything else.

Most people don't use flare joints anymore.

I had one to do "double-flaring", inherited it from my Father.
Brake lines.
It "walked off"- not cheap!!

I either inherited this from my father, or else someone left it by accident while working down there. My mom has a whole box full of stuff that we can't figure out what it's used for, but I told her not to throw anything away. I'll probably be back with more pictures some day.

Don't throw out anything that you've got (that looks like a tool!)
Someone might have a use for it!
