The Flex-Hone honing tool is designed to provide a quality surface finish for a variety of automotive, hydraulic, pneumatic and industrial applications in sizes ranging from 4 mm to 36". The tool’s soft cutting action produces a non-directional or crosshatched pattern, increasing product performance and life, the company says.
The hones are available in 400, 600 and 800 grit for fine surface-finishing tolerances that result in single-digit, Ra-level finishes. They also are available in diamond abrasive for harder materials such carbide, ceramic and aerospace steel alloys.
