flaring tool size for hose reel

As can be seen in the picture, my garden hose reel intake valve is a steel pipe 3/4" in diameter inside the hole. As I haven't worked with this kind (thinner wall) of steel pipe (only indoor galvanized, which is thicker), I wanted to ask which size of hammer flaring tool I should get to flare another terminal. This one has served about 4 years and it is bust as the flared part wore off and the nut and gasket that were on it (not pictured) slid off. I plan to shorted the pipe to just above the current flaring and the reflare it after I get a nut and gasket replacement.

So basically, if the inside of the steel pipe is 3/4", do I just get a 3/4" hammer flaring tool or is it different for this kind of pipe?

Flaring is my least favorite thing to do....probably in the world .

So, I would probably try to find some sort of compression fitting or rubber fitting (fernco type maybe) to make it work without flaring.

Maybe one of THESE...or one of THESE maybe. Obviously I may not have the right sizes.

If you're dead set on flaring it, then I can't be of much help...sorry
