Compression fittings are unacceptable.

Do you mean a flare tool? For brake lines you need a double flare. The tube flares out to its maximum diameter, then is folded back on itself to the inside. The double thickness of steel is needed for strength. A decent parts house should have one, but a good one will be pretty expensive; I think in the area of $100.

Your best bet would be to buy tubing bender and a new piece of tubing with the ends flared already. A tubing bender will be in the $20 range. Depending on how the tube needs to be bent, you might not even need one.
