      An6 fittings from hard to flex lines

      I've been searching, and it seems that there are two different -AN styles for hard lines. Compression fittings that use a brass ferrule and the 37 degree flare type. Is one better than the other?

      Thanks!

      I have had good luck with the 37 flare fittings. Get a good flaring tool and you should have no problems. Also do not use seamed tubing

      Thank you for the input. I have a good flaring tool and had planned on going that route-it was only recently i learned of the other type. Just wanted to make sure I was still good with the 37 flare.

      I would use a 37 degree flare over a ferrule. It all comes down to proper prep and a quality flaring tool!

      My video shows everything you need to know, including the tool, which, as I recall, wasn't very expensive.

      Both ways work. I prefer the stainless industrial brand compression fittings like swagelok
