I get it now. You are cutting the soft line so the hose can spin while you are turning the nut on the soft line. Otherwise it would want to spin back closed once you take the wrench off.

So you still need all of the wrenches it's just that you are saving from having to turn the fitting on the hard line end....which requires less nut damaging torque then just holding it in place.

I thought you guys were suggesting that cutting the soft line saved you from needing one of the wrenches..possibly the flare wrench.
