feature removable, replaceable cutting
inserts, allowing operators to replace only
those cutting edges that are worn or damaged, on the spot. The company says the
replaceable inserts are less expensive and
contribute to reduced machine down-time.
The cutting inserts are engineered to sit
precisely within the insert seats, so that dust
does not gather behind the cutting edge.
FS Tool supplies a torque wrench pre-set to
100 in-lbs. to ensure that cutting inserts are
tightened to the correct degree.
