I had to look up bundy tube and it seems it is not the same as Cunifer. Cunifer is a copper nickel alloy and very easy to work with and super corrosion resistant.
Thanks, I think I might go with the Cunifer or the Bundy that you mention.
I've done hundreds and hundreds of DFs on the OEM and similar lines so much so that I've worn out an Imperial DF tool in 3/16's and had to replace parts to keep it going.
I invested in a Mastercool tool and with no instruction just dinking around with it, the first DF I did on some scrap line was better than my best one ever done the old way. Or I only thought I had good tools and knew how to use them.
That said, I don't recommend it unless you do a lot of flaring or just like to own expensive tools and the only reason I brought it up was the huge difference in quality the final product is.
Thanks for jogging my memory on the cunifer. I had it confused and it I'm not mistaken it is what is used on the high end cars is it not?
