New nickel-plated tubing, metric fittings, a pipe-cutter, and a flaring-tool.

When suddenly... what? I see a brake line with plastic protective sleeving on it and a flare nut. And fingers. The picture is a bit blurry, so what are we supposed to be seeing?

Unless I'm just missing something, the whole end piece looks like it's come loose for the treads and I can't fit a new line on it. Maybe I'm imagining things... I'll go back and check the other side. Either way. Yeah... Maybe I'm just tired.

I'm not seeing a problem. The threaded part is not supposed to be fixed to the pipe. It threads into the other side of the fitting and uses compression to close / seal the brake system.

I guess that I've just never seen the flared end of the line separated from the threads before. ... The more you know

Is the hard line twisted just behind the hex, or is that just an optical illusion?

Here where we don't se salt on the roads the nut almost always separates from the flare. I'd be more surprised if it didn't.

How would it spin without twisting up the line if it was all one?
