Should a Ridgid 345 Flaring bar be completely tightened when flaring 3/8 OD copper? If I tighten the clamping screw sufficiently enough to get the yoke into position, I have already deformed/crushed the tubing. It seems the bar is not correct for 3/8 OD. I measured the tubing with a dial caliber and it is 3/8. Could Ridgid be getting these from China and being made to a metric close equivalent and not true SAE?
