Default Brake Pipe Flaring Tool

Need a new one, last one was a cheap Fleecebay one the one with the 2 bars you clamp together, push a die into the pipe then wind another bit in, if that makes sense. It was okay but sometimes a bit hit & miss, is there a reasonably price alternative?

I use this style, wasn’t from eBay but I’m sure they’re all made by the same place, I find it really good even for putting ends on steel pipes

Arriving today by a dusky Amazonian Princess, or more likely a surly East European

Just to finish this off, bought the tool & the lad used it on his BMW drift car last night on the steel pipes fitting a hydraulic handbrake, he was most impressed.
