You're right...it's not a 37 degree flare. However, an SAE/Milspec tube bead might be an alternative. Another option would be a DIN bubble flare.
There are other areas in the Vans directions that have you create a 37 degree flare and then sand it down to create the bead.
We are just exploring some alternatives and curious to confirm the material (Stainless) as well as the diameter of the tube and the wall thickness to determine if we can create an additional option for builders.
Here is a sample picture of what I am talking about. We didn't do these beads, but it illustrates what I am referring to.
