Before inserting micrometer spindle in boring head, clean hole with bristle brush furnished.
Insert the t ol holder in the boring head. Turn guard ring on micrometer to the left (to protect tool bit and
micrometer), insert the micrometer spindle in boring head and push it in until it clicks into place.
Turn the tool bit guard ring back to the right, allo wing the tool bit point to gently contact the micrometer face. DO
NOT rotate micrometer while tool is in contact with the face; scratches will affect setting size.
Lock the tool holder in place, remove micrometer.
For best uniformity of tool setting, use the same part of the mike face in contact
with the tool bit for all settings. This is easily done by keeping the micrometer
lockscrew in the same position each time.
When removing the tool holder from the boring head, have one hand on the tool to
prevent its flying out.
The finishing tool is set in the boring head in exactly the same way, after resetting
the micrometer for the desired finished size.
Be sure the setting of the boring machine micrometer corresponds with the inside micrometer used in measuring the
cylinders. If necessary to reset the tool setting micrometer, proceed in the following manner:
First, set the boring tool with the tool setting micrometer to take a light cut and lock the knurled thumbscrew to retain the
micrometer setting. Bore about an inch down, then measure the hole with the inside micrometer.
Second, loosen the setscrew in the hub of the thimble of the tool setting mike , turn the thimble to correspond with the
measured size of the hole, and lock the setscrew.
Third, after thus adjusting the micrometer thimble, set the micrometer to a size 5 or 10 thousandths larger, bore again and
If further adjustment is necessary, reset the thimble and check again. Repeat until the two micrometers read alike.
