I think I have my sizes mixed up. Nut size should be M10, but still don't know the thread pitch. Also, can you simply convert a single flare tool to a double flare tool with a set of dies like this: ... mage=large

I got a free bender and flare tool with my brake line. It looks like the only difference between a single and double flare tool set would be the dies themselves. Any input?

man, you are gonna cuss that flaring tool every second you have it in your hand, you should find someone with a really nice hydraulic tool, they are much easier and make perfect flares every time. You can use that one, but it's not easy and takes a lot of practice to get a double flare, at least one that you can use.....if you do a quick search you can find where I suggested this tool to another member, with pictures. But they are not cheap, I paid about 320.00 for mine. kind of a waste if you don't use it much, but I really like cool tools!!!
