Default FYI for damaged AN/JIC flares

I (like an idiot) nicked a male flare which is welded to the component (don't weld flare bungs).

I didn't want to disassemble, cut, and re-weld so I sought an alternative "fix". I spoke to a guy who operates a race car chassis repair biz and he said the local guys have been running Flaretite seals on beat-up JIC fittings with good results. They're not cheap, but they might save you a headache.

I can't confirm whether they worked for me since I didn't attempt to run the fitting without the seal.

No affiliation, just passing along the info.
