Eat your Wheaties before you use that puppy with a ratchet!!!! One problem with re-rolling tubes is expanding one tube MIGHT affect the one next to it and start it to leak. Chasing the leakers can make you entertain a different line of work. If you have never done it before or even seen it done, don't try it yourself.

Don't try this at home kids, we are what you might call professionals!!!

How in a fitzgibbons manufactured efm boiler can you retube it since the upper portion of the tubes have only 5 inches of space above them ? unless you burn the jacket apart. Please can it be done?
