    That has a smooth cone?
    Yet the blocks are cool.
    Do they make a manual cone?
    Would the block be useable with any multi face cone tools?
    I use the Ridgid multi face with the cone attached.

    I don't know why you would want a manual. Best most consistent flares. Locks into drill body and clutches when done.

    That driver requires a lot of room, I may want to use it for all flaring.
    But it is a smooth or wobble-multi face?
    I wonder if you could remove the driver at times?
    How much did you pay?

    I used a spin flare bit in an air drill in the factory many years ago, worked well. But I'm partial to my manual Imperial Eastman flaring and swaging tool. For the most part I don't use flares. I understand the OP asked specifically about mini splits and flares

    Like the Hilmar looks and it seems it would be good for the newbe who has not be making flares for years. However it is a little pricy IMHO.

    I don't think it is pricy for a quality tool. Johnstone was having a sale on Hilmore
