What you need is a push-connect fitting. Here is a tool that makes it. Mastercool 71300 And here is the complete kit for all types of tubing flares and fittings. Mastercool 71475. Yes, it does take a few bucks for the right tool. I have tried a few different type double flare tools over the years and this one does it perfect everytime. If you are making your own brake lines, spend the extra money and get a perfect double flare, no leaks.
I remember seeing a tool for that purpose on a car magazine or TV show proyect over the last 6 months. It was something that goes inside the tubing and has like a metal ball that comes up against the inner wall when twisted in certain direction but I can't remember where. Hope this wasn't another of my car related dreams.
I have the mastercool hydraulic flare kit above. It makes a bulge that is too high if you make the Ford flare. Maybe you could do it half way and it would work. You just need a little bulge to retain the hose.
The double flare first step "upset" is a good idea.
