Could you have it a little long then cut the ends to fit and flare so that you can use the newer tooling?
At times I do that, but flaring an end with the ferrule takes up space that the flaring tools needs to make the flare.  Bends can be made tighter by flaring the end first, and then bending with the vintage Rigid bender with modified parrot nose pliers.

An example of what I am referring to: http://www.hotrod.com/articles/hard-line-bending-basics/#113_0708_11_z-hard_line-90_degree_bend
