External Thread Deburring Chamfer Tool?
« on: January 11, 2019, 01:30 PM »
While on google I came across this thread deburring tool from our Aussie friends.  It looks like an easy way to dress the end of a threaded rod or bolt after cutting to size, although it would be nice if one was available to fit diameters smaller than 10mm.  I've seen something similar from China on eBay for cheap, but so far nothing of quality.

Does anyone know more about these and how well they work?  Is there one like it that will fit a wider diameter range?

Thanks, Mike A.

It reminds me of the pvc pipe deburring tools that are sold.

Here’s one that goes from #8 to 3/4”.

I do a lot of bolt shortening and threaded rod cutting and have been beveling the rod/bolt end with a cordless RA grinder and a flap wheel. That heliburr looks interesting.

@Cheese  Thanks!

No, Thank You Mike... [big grin]  I’m going to order a Heliburr and try it out. They advertise that it can be used on stainless also.  [cool]

I just finished up a project where I had to shorten 30 each stainless eye bolts in both 5/16-18 & 3/8-16 thread. This tool would have been perfect.

Here's another option for thread restoring, particularly down the full length of the bolt.  The original one I have was my grandfathers, but they still make them and I've purchased one of the new ones which work equally well for restoring damaged threads across a range of sizes, both coarse and fine.

I think I saw R&R Buildings demoing something similar to the Aussie tool above, which is slightly different in purpose but seems to do a good job.

Yeah, that looks handy.  Be sure to post on how well it works.
