    How do you make bubble flare pipe ends?

    Jaguar rear calipers needs bubble flare brake pipe ends to seal properly.
    I have been told two different ways to make these flares:

    1. Buy a bubble flare tool.
    2. Use the more common 45 degree inverted flare tool and skip the last operation (the one that inverts the flare).

    I have a good 45 degree inverted flare tool already. It's written in the users manual that if I want to make "Citroen flares", I just skip the last operation. Do they mean bubble flare when they write "Citroen flare"?

    Is alterantive 2 just as good flare as alternative 1?
    Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

    Just use op 1 tool only, op2 should only be used ( after using op1 obviously ) when coupling to male threads ie brake hoses.
