West Marine carries a flaring tool. Made by Moellar. Cost is $9,99 I found this on line by typing drain tool on google search. List West Marine. Click on West Marine add and you can buy direct for this price. Merry Christmas everybody. :D

Thats for the 1" drain tubes. If you are using the 1 1/4" drain tubes you need the 1 1/4" flanging tool. The ones circulating around here are both sizes.

AA and Fishgitr,
I was away for a few days from the forum and didn't see this updated thread. If Fishgitr needs them now send them to him.

Fishgitr,
If I get em first I'll connect with you and get them to you.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Steve

Dutch1,
Did CL's flaring tools find their way to you? If so, are they available for me to borrow? Happy to pay postage and return to wherever. Perhaps I should send a PM also. Will do.

Thanks!
