Metalworkers need reliable tools for shaping, cutting, forming, and finishing metal parts and products. Calipers and scribers are great for measuring and marking materials, and tools like pliers, punches, hammers, and hacksaws can be found on many workbenches. Some metalworkers use production machinery and equipment, but electric hand drills and bench vises are common enough, too.
Reamers and other cutting tools are great for enlarging holes in pipes and removing metal from cylinder walls. Rigid hones are used for cylinder resizing and heavy-duty material removal. Honing stones are recommended for initial honing (such as with OEM engine cylinders), but there’s a better way to achieve a final finish. For both new and used cylinders, metalworkers use the BRM Flex-Hone® tool.
