    Thanks redewX2
    To do double flares you would need "double lap adaptors". I have these for my #345 flaring tool, but am not sure wether they are available with the #458R.

      I agree. You need to contact the Ridgid technical department, because my flaring tool (#345) is only rated for soft copper, etc. You would need the #458R for your application. Call the Ridgid tech support department. They are usually helpfull.

      Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
