Diamond Tool Features Self-Sharpening Edge
Brush Research Manufacturing’s diamond flex-hones are designed for deburring, edge blending and surface finishing in hard materials such as carbide, ceramic and aerospace steel alloys. The tools are engineered using resin-bond diamond crystals with high friability, a characteristic that makes edges self-sharpening.

Expanded Line Of Miniature Deburring Brushes
According to the company, miniature deburring brushes can automate the removal of burrs and the production of an edge radius on small-dameter holes, saving time and money while improving product quality and consistency. Filament choices include carbon steel, stainless steel, brass, nylon and natural to provide the optimum finish on a variety of base materials. The miniature deburring brushes are available in a diamond-abrasive-filled nylon filament.

Abrasive Tool For Cylinders
The Flex-Hone tool from Brush Research Manufacturing is a flexible honing tool that removes peaks and other imperfections in cylinder walls to create a specific surface finish. The tool’s construction allows the abrasive globules, or “stones,” to float, ensuring that the tool will be self-centering, self-aligning to the bore and self-compensating for wear. Applications include cross-hole deburring, surface finishing and edge blending.

Ball-style hones

Lose The Peaks, Leave The Valleys
Plateau honing improves cylinder wall surface finish by gently removing tiny peaks of torn or folded material. Ball-style honing tools are commonly used to produce this desirable finish.
