Default WTB: 37 Degree Flaring Tool

I am looking for a 37* flaring tool to flare some 3/8" mild steel tubing as an alternative to this one here:

Thanks for checking! Anybody else? I am thinking about buying the cheap tool above but I'm just not sure. There are other designs I like better, but I just don't use it all that often.

Thanks to all that PM'd me with tools. I did some research, and there were people that used the cheaper one (that I linked to above) and had problems with leaky joints.

I wound up buying an Imperial 437-FB tool today. It's a few cuts above the cheaper ones, but still not as fancy as some of the more expensive kits. It does have some features I like, such as a flaring cone press assembly that's easy to center on the tubing, and "stacked" dies which clamp lengthwise rather than across the width. Maybe I'll do a write-up on it when it comes!
