I wish I had bought one 40 years ago. Every time I needed one I always said to myself, " I'm NOT gonna spend that kind of money for something I'll never use again!" That really wasn't a good argument because I  have lots of tools I probably will never use again!   Sad Sad

You see the hump one pushes a gas line over on a steel line or a ac line with a o-ring that is what it is for

Clifford:

You are the only person I know that has tools buried under other tools, weather they be in rollaways or on benches. Thanks again for letting me use so many of those tools.

I'm glad you asked Brian.  I figured probably everybody else knew and I was just too stupid to know what it was.

   Here is the one I used recently to make brake lines; it also makes the a/c or power steering type lines. Hydraulically operated (low hand pressure)....sweet but expensive. They now make a copper/nickel alloy brake tubing in 25 foot rolls. No more replacement lines rusting out from the winter salted roads. The stuff they use now is worse than the old salt they used. The rust can push the brake lining off the shoes. The trucking industry calls it rust jacking.

Are you talking about tube beads for rubber hoses?

There is a much cheaper version that has a hand crank but can't very well be used once the tubing is installed.

There's something called Earl's EZ-beader that's popular with racing mechanics (and racing tool sites) in part because it is easy to use on installed pipe. Buying the set is just as expensive as any other choice, but if you only need one size, buying just that one isn't going to break the bank.

Or go search your favorite tool sites.

This is the classic Parker beading tool.  https://www.aircraftspruce.ca/catalog/topages/parkerbead.php  That is the Canadian web site, the price may be different on a US site, but it ain't cheap.  I was confused at calling it a flare tool, I always called them beading tools.

I believe those ends are called "bumped tube". I originally saw them used on A/C lines and then on fuel lines.
