Align Boring Facing Attachments


facinghead_position
The facing heads are used to machine the outer surface 90 degrees to the bore. Using the same cutting tools for cutting the bores, place them in the tool holder of the saddle. To advance the tool bit along the work face, use the star wheel and the striker ring shown at the bottom of the page. Each time the star wheel hits the striker ring the tool bit advances approximately 3 thousandths (.003) of an inch.

Striker Ring

TM-SP-30

The striker ring is used with the star wheel to advance the tool bit automatically. To advance the tool bit you have to secure the striker ring in one position. This is done by placing a rod into the striker ring and securing it to the work piece. Once the machining is complete, remove the rod and the striker ring will rotate with the facing head and the tool bit will not advance any further.
