Default Flaring ports, what am I doing wrong?



How the he'll do I get a smooth flare with out the ridges and humps? Tried a few different cereal bowls, lamp globes, and 2 different size metal bowls. What am I doing wrong?

I was told before to use less heat and more pressure that would keep it from rippling on the neck of the flare. But I could have been misinformed. But it did work for me.

Maybe I'm just being picky, I'll try to do another one and see what happens. Probably will just end up running that one. Thanks guys
