Anyone know how to make these?

I am installing new fuel lines in my 72 Chevy truck and I would like to have these knobs on the ends of the lines to make sure my hoses stay put and not slip ..

I have a flaring tool set but nothing in it looks like it would make this knob,,anyone you know of made these on fuel lines and know how they were done?

I cannot find anyone or place who puts these on fuel lines .. Maybe they are Indigenous to General Motors and only made by them ,,what do you think.?

Weld a bead around the pipe clean it up with a grinder put your clamp above the bead this will keep the clamp in place.

That there is a double flare.

There is a tool like your std. flare to make it.

Or like this bad boy, looks like it would make life easy....

A local hydraulic shop should be able to take care of you.

I've done this many times. I do it with my double flareing kit. You start off like normal but during the first "compression" dont smash it all the way to the bar, just do it about half the distance then take it appart and see if that is what you want. I end up with a nice 'donut' around the end of the line.
