SUPPLEMENTAL OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR
LARGER THAN USUAL SIZES AND FOR CYLINDERS
Before honing, thoroughly wash out the cylinder or object to
be honed with an approved solvent, removing all grease and oiL
Be sure to dry the hole thoroughly with a clean rag.
Cast iron can be honed dry with both roughing and finishing
stones. However, for best results, be sure to use polishing and
most other stones wet. Honing of steel and aluminum must be
done wet. We suggest the use of a brush to apply honing oil to
the stones and work; the applications should be both frequent
and generous. On machines equipped with dual single or
electrically pumped oil (accessory) we suggest a plentiful supply of
oil (from both ends if Honing machine is Dual Oil equipped)
The best honing results are obtained from the slowest speed
in the range of 250 to 450 rpm or lower if your machine is so
equipped. (CHX & CMS machines).
