1pc Cylinder Honing tool 127mm- ENGINE -180 GRIT 140MM Ball type
Covers - 130-140mm (5 1/2" Honing tool)
The Flex-Hone tool should be securely held in a collet, chuck, or similar holding device. It is best to use the shortest shank possible for your application. The Flex-Hone tool should be well coated with
lubricant and rotating prior to entry and should continue rotating until fully removed from the part. The tool can be run from 60 to 1200 RPM, depending on tool diameter. The smaller the
diameter, the higher the spindle speeds. Start with a spindle speed between 500-800RPM. You may need to experiment to find the optimum speed for your application. Never exceed 1200 RPM.
The Flex-Hone tool must always be used with a good quality cutting oil or honing fluid to keep heat to a minimum, prevent the tool from loading and to suspend the material being removed. The
Flex-Hone tool should have a continuous stroke rate between 120 to 180 inches per minute. Final stroking may be accelerated to develop a 45° crosshatch finish.
Use the minimum honing time needed to achieve the required finish. Average honing time is 10-25 seconds, (5-15 strokes). Clean the cylinder using hot, soapy water and brush the cylinder wall
with a cleaning brush. Dry the cylinder and continue to clean with a lint free cloth coated with a light oil or mineral spirits. Continue to clean until the lint free cloth remains clean.
