Porting tools, what works for you
« on: July 03, 2014, 02:14:38 pm »
I use Foredom SR motor with foot control, misc. Straight hand pieces, couple of small latch type hand pieces(55a +b) and an NSK 90 degree hand piece.  #55 handpieces are only for really small detailed work and will last for years if treated as such.   I use a bunch of alumihog as well as smooth cut carbide bits. The coarse cut bits need a light touch or you'll ruin a jug quickly.  I find the Craytex rubberized diamond tips quite handy for final clean up/chattering.

I use a lot of oval and ball single cut carbide burrs, and rounded cylindrical and ball diamond points.  I use mostly the #30 generic, #44 Foredoms, generic slender, the CC 182MC and my custom made NSK dental head handpieces. 

An older shot of my goto's.  I've since started to use more diamond points to smooth transfer ports and to chamfer ports.



This is an older shot of what I happened to have chucked up that day. 



This is the NSK dental adapter I made compared to the CC 182Mc.  It uses latch burrs like the Foredom 55's but the $18 NSK knock off dental head seems to hold up much better than the Foredom contra's, and it doesn't get hot either.  Bit change is a snap, push the button on the back and slide a new bit in.  I broke 3 55d's before I bought the 182MC, but I missed the quick change of bits and how small they were for sub 60cc cylinders. 



NSK dental adapter with a modified 1/8" shaft, 1/4" head single cut carbide burr... the transfer hog!



A Foredom #8 next to a generic slender handpiece I found that I can convert to use with the Foredom shaft.



I do sell the generic slender and #30 handpieces currently.  Also I'm thinking of starting to sell the NSK dental adapters and provide a service to skinny 1/8" shaft burrs and cut the latch groove in them if anyone is interested.

I updated all my stuff for me and the wife to what srcarr hand pieces he modded.  I noticed alot less vibration between the hand piece and the new flex shaft he sent out. 
Wife still hasnt had to use the small slender one.

What better use for one of the wife's bird feeder or plant hangers.

Any of you experts using these ones?  4  new ones I never used after loosing interest inside the cylinders.

 I had no patience and couldnt get out what  I was used to running from others.  No lathe etc didnt help with just using redneck methods.

Kev,
those McMaster Carr carbide burrs are high quality and American made. I use the same.   I'm flush with cutters, perhaps someone else will take Em off your hands

Hope everyone has a nice 4th weekend!!

I've got a few of those hand pieces from shaun. They work nicely. I do have the cc 182 right angle. I need to get a good foredom motor that's reversible soon. I'm still using the cheap Chicago tool motor that ki got from Durand. I bought a lot of bits from cc and like those alumni hog bits they sell.

FYI. McMaster sells Buckeye carbide. You can save yourself some money and buy directly from them, or from their main distributor on ebay.

All I've got is a Dremel,actually three but I can only find one at the moment .I must have half a coffee can full of little cutters of all sizes shapes and lengths .Plus cratex ,felt fobs,stones  etc .

It's slow but believe it of not I can do the upper transfers actually pretty well considering .If I ever get around to cleaning up my pig sty of a garage I'll probably find the other two Dremels .
