Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of industrial brushes and flexible honing tools, is announcing the new Flex-Hone® Resource Guide for surface finishing specialists. Available on the BRM website, this free technical book spans seven full-color pages and is filled with tool tips, recommended ranges, application suggestions, and manufacturer guidelines.

Understanding Flexible Honing

BRM cylinder hones are flexible, resilient honing tools that are used in surface finishing applications such as cylinder deglazing, plateau finishing, and cross-hole deburring. Made with abrasive globules that are laminated onto the ends of flexible nylon filaments, the Flex-Hone® is self-aligning, self-centering, and self-compensating for wear.

Flexible Hone Guidelines and Application Expertise

Manufacturers, machinists, mechanics, and hobbyists are invited to download the Flex-Hone® Resource Guide to learn about tool and diameter selection, abrasive and grit recommendations, suggested RPMs and stroke rate, lubrication and setup, and power requirements and filtration. This free, downloadable technical book also provides answers to many frequently asked questions (FAQs) about ball hones.

How to Choose Ball Hones

Surface finishing specialists who need help choosing the right flexible honing tool can use the new Flex-Hone® Resource Guide to master various selection criteria. As this free technical book explains, diameter is determined by nominal bore size since BRM cylinder hones are always used in an oversized condition. Base material and desired surface finish determine which abrasive and grit to choose.

How to Use Cylinder Hones

BRM ball hones, or cylinder hones, always require the use of a lubricant or honing oil. The Flex-Hone® Resource Guide explains which fluids to choose - and which ones to avoid. Easy-to-read tables with recommended ranges for revolutions per minute (RPM) and inches per minute (IPM) also inform users who want to attain the ideal surface finish. There are also power requirement and filtration guidelines.
