    Tubing expander

    I have a good set of yellow jacket tubing expanders and some of the other guys were using them and want to get some now but they're pricy and they found a different set on eBay, I've never used them so I couldn't make a recommendation. Has any one else used these? If so how do they compare to yellow jackets?

    They look just like the yellow jackets that I have, I bet they work about the same

    My boss got me a yellow jacket expander. Great tool just splits the pipe sometimes, nothing a braze cant fix. Saves money on fittings and also= less brazes less chances for leaks.

    That's what I have but the guys are trying spend less money if they can and are looking at the ones I posted originally. So if anyone has used them I would like to know how they feel about them. Thanks guys.
