Not sure what tubing you're doing.

Go to your local FBO, aircraft repair station, local airport, etc. Either rent
or borrow the tool, or have an experienced mechanic do the job for you. If he's
done a few, he'll do a better job while eating lunch at the same time than you
will while giving it your best effort.

Tools are great, but for infrequent jobs, sometimes using someone else is a good
