I didnt want to spend a fortune for a tool I would probably use once! So, I got the Eastwood model. It was listed around $200, but they had a special (which I think is perpetual) and it was $179. with free shipping. Super easy to set up, very simple to use and everything is well labled. To make the flares is a 2 step process but its straightforward. I would buy one again and am happy with it. Not to sure about the value because I have checked any others.

Forgot I had these pics. Nice packaging and well organized. It will flare several sizes of lines as well.

I would followup on this by saying that it works nice on steel but does NOT work well on stainless lines in my experience.

I have this same tool.  I've never had a leaky fitting.  I mostly do NiCopp, but did do one stainless line for a buddy and that came out fine as well.

Sounds like stainless lines in general, for any tools like these.
