well, if you go with compression, then no flares needed.

otherwise you need to go with 37° flares, also known as JIC fittings.

save the double flare tools for your brakelines ;)

Same fittings are used For AN, but they are not the same pressure rating! ;)

as 216 says, use Parker flaring tools and nuts. compresion ends are easier but flares are neater and more secure

i think the neater and more of an opinon because i personally don't like them
i think the compression looks better.

how do the compression fittings work exactly? all the fitting i got are the type you need to flare and if i can get away with not having to that would be cool...

they have a ferrule that bites into the tube, and provides the seal and the mechanical retention all in one

all you do it tighten the flareless fitting (Swagelok,Parker) and the ferrul tightens on the stainless tube.
go to ebay.com and type swagelok and thats the fitting they use
