    Default Can I use a 37° flare tool for a 45° fitting?

    I'm receiving conflicting information about the proper flare angle on the line set for a two-ton R410a mini split unit. Since the copper tubing is pretty maleable, do you think I could get away with using my 37° Ridgid flare tool and counting on the force exerted by the flare nut to properly shape the tubing if the required angle turns out to be 45°?
