    I just have my Mastercool Hydra 71700 (haven't use it yet) is there an option to adapt those expander heads and adapter from 71650? Just thinking of not spending for another set.

    I also have a orbital hilmor and it works great. I have an old cps imperial style thats has always worked well for me but the orbital with the clutch and depth gauge makes it almost fool proof or as we in arizona call it chase roberts orangutan proof.

    Same here... Got min from my father, guessing early 80's. I see no need to change, it make perfect flare for me.

    The yellow jacket hydraulic swage and flaring. Always makes great flares and swages.. I love making my own couplings of different lengths

    http://yellowjacket.com/product/987 or
    http://yellowjacket.com/product/815

    Also haven their bender. No more couplings or elbows on new line sets.

    http://yellowjacket.com/product/819

    Both of these tools have saved time and money...It also reduces the possibility of leaks because you minimize the amount of joints.

    Has anyone tried those new sil-flos 15% rings you put in the coupling then heat up for a "perfect air tight seal"?

    The CPS FT800FN is the one to get! Comes with a ratchet for added leverage and a nice composite case. Best VALUE at ~$75!

    That ratchet drive attachment on the CPS looks like a great idea. More than a couple of times I've wished I had 6-foot arms like an orangutan for flaring anything over 3/8" tubing with my YJ. It does seem to take a lot of forearm with the short handles they put on these eccentric flare tools.

    I ended up ordering the Yellow Jacket Deluxe tool and have yet to use it since I had to buy a mastercool eccentric flaring tool(which looks just like the rigid one above)on my company's account as an emergency before the YJ arrived. I have to say the Mastercool one worked great and I'll probably send the YJ Deluxe back.
