Esco Tool offers the electric C-MILLHOG® OD clamping end prep tool for use on thin-wall and heavy-wall tubes with a high percentage of chrome, especially in high-purity applications.
The tool has a massive clamp that grips tubing from the outside, evenly distributing the holding power to help ensure chatter-free end prep. Featuring a 950-W electric motor and requiring no cutting oils, the end prep tool is suitable for use on high-purity piping systems requiring 37.5-degree bevels, flat facing, J-preps, or orbital welding.
Equipped with a ratchet feed, which provides more than 1 in. of stroke, the tool operates on 110/230 V. It is suitable for prepping stainless steel and most hard-to-machine alloys. It has a narrow body that fits between 1.125-in. tubes and a working range of 0.5 to 2.5 in.
