It will work. I wish I had a plasma cutter instead of the metal cutting disk on my skillsaw.
You will be sooooooo glad you have disk brakes. My only problem was the crap double flare tool I borrowed from the auto supply store. My 50 year old flaring tool set was missing the 7/16 adapter and the one in the Chinese kit I borrowed was crap. Had to re do several double flares because of leaks.
