The floating pin-style shave toolholder introduced by the company nearly 70 years ago still sells well. However, the original pin-style floating mechanism has limited ability in countering the machining conditions that may induce "chatter." While skilled operators have developed some makeshift fixes to reduce chatter, none has proven to be reliable, and some may even reduce chatter at the expense of accuracy. For this reason, the company has introduced the new Ultimate G Style shaving system that fights chatter and provides the user with more advanced options in tooling selection. The new shave toolholder has a dovetail float mechanism that features a hardened and ground dovetail slide with a tapered gib. This dovetail float mechanism has from eight to ten times the bearing surface of the original pin style holders that actively fights chatter while providing a smooth floating action over the part. The gib is adjustable with a single screw and cannot be misaligned. A key feature on the new shaving system is the replaceable tool post. The tool post can be removed without having to remove the shave toolholder or altering the setup at the machine. The tool posts are available for standard dovetail tools or for more advanced HSS and super carbide insert type tools. The new shave toolholders use standard replacement parts, offsets, adjustments and adapter blocks and are available in seven capacities from 0 to 2 1/4". The company provides complete design and manufacture for dovetail cutting tools as well as the special pre-formed rectangular and triangular cutting tool inserts that can be used in shaving or forming. The inserts are produced from specially engineered super carbide and super high-speed steel engineered for maximum performance on screw machines.
