It can be used on the spindles of machining centers, boring and milling machines, etc., via the use of the proper shank adapter. There is an indexable mechanism to properly size the diameter of the hole being bored by relative adjustment in microns. The head features a quick and simple adjusting mechanism. It weighs 2.5 lbs. and is manufactured from high alloy tool steel.
