Regrinding Instructions for Standard Nose Grinds:
- Place the fixture on the table of the machine. The base of the fixture has two through slots that clamp the base to the table. Install two through bolts but do not tighten. Position the horizontal (base) register at zero. Indicate front face of the fixture zero to the table movement then tighten the through bolts.
- Select the appropriate clamping blade for the drill type. The angled blade is to "V" flute gun drills, ensuring the "F" mark on the blade is toward the front. The flat blade is for half round drills. Store the unused blade on the tapped hole provided on the base.
- Slide the gun drill or half round drill under the blade clamp and forward of the "V" base. Lock in position on the tube only with the carbide tip fully clear of the base and blade clamp. With both horizontal and vertical scales set at zero, the drill's flat cutting surface should be parallel to the table.
- Grind the drill by following the steps outlined for the most common grinds. Custom nose grinds can be ground to your requirements. It is recommended that a suitable dust collection system is used. A cold gun or spraymist is recommended for large diameters.
