Chris,

Go on Ebay and order a bag of those - the total each fitting will be a fraction of the price from Rimmers.

While you are there order yourself a flaring tool as well - probably get a base one (good enough for occasional DIY) delivered for a tenner.

I bought one a year or so ago and did all of mine - easy peasy!!

Good luck

cHRIS,

Any flaring kit should be fine to be honest - its all thin wall stuff, irrespective of the material (Copper or SS).

Think mine was a Silverline one from memory - pretty sturdy (and very cheap!).

If/when you get one of the fittings removed tell me how long it is and I will compare it to one in the garage if you are worried - also note how much is pertruding as of course some of it could just be 'spare' thread.

Ian
