flaring tool- is used for taking a brake line and putting an end on it so that the fitting going to your brake master cylinder doesnt fall off.
I would really suggest getting a Sears, Snap-on, MAC, tool catalogues, and then you can see what it does, and see a picture. Also I am sure there are books on basic tools.
Like theres probably a tools for dummies book which is a pretty good collection of books discussing a variety of topics. My friend got Sex for Dummies, he said its pretty good, but I havent looked at that book yet.
If youd like I could save you my old tool catalogues and send them to you. Just email me.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
