The MILLHOG® line of end prep tools from ESCO Tool comes with the EscoLock™ blade lock system, which holds up to three blades at once to allow simultaneous beveling, facing, and boring without cutting oils.
The system features a wedge lock design that holds tighter while it works. Incorporating a chip breaker to direct the chip away from the tube surface and dissipate heat, the cutter blades can be supplied in styles to match almost any angle of end prep.
Made from T-15 tool steel and TiN-coated for added lubricity, the blades can cut stainless steel, P-91, and other hard materials. The end prep tools are designed to machine tube and pipe from 1/2 in. to 18 in. OD.
