Does anyone know the purpose of this tool?  The holes are threaded.

One of two pieces needed, the other being the actual flaring tool.  Gooogle "flaring tool" for examples.

Are you sure they're threaded?  They're often ridged - look like threads at first glance, but not spiral - to improve the grip on the tubing.
