FLEX-HONE FOR FIREARMS
Flex-Hones are ideal for improving the function and extending the life of your firearms.
Metal surfaces of your firearm contain microscopic “peaks” and “valleys”. The formation of corrosion is hastened by residual stresses present at the surface. The plateau finish produced by the Flex-Hone refines the peaks and reduces surface tension by removing highly stressed areas. The valleys produced by the Flex-Hone improve the surface’s ability to hold oil. Many firearms companies are choosing the Flex-Hone for their final finish requirements.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Always make sure that the magazine and chamber are empty prior to using the Flex-Hone Tool. Disassemble your firearm and secure the Flex-Hone firmly into the chuck of a lathe, drill press or hand drill. It is best to use the shortest shank possible for your application. The Flex-Hone Tool must always be used with a good quality cutting oil or honing fluid to keep heat to a minimum, and prevent the tool from loading and to suspend the abrasive material. We offer a specially formulated Flex-Hone Oil for this tool. Although many lubricants are satisfactory including water soluble fluids, we highly recommended using Flex-Hone Oil for the finest finish and longest tool life possible.
Rotate the tool prior to entry and continue rotating until the tool is fully removed from the part. Stroke the tool at a smooth,constant speed. Clean the cylinder using a CLP type cleaner and brush the cylinder wall with a cleaning brush. Dry the
cylinder and continue to clean with a lint free cloth coated with a light oil or mineral spirits. Continue until the lint free cloth remains clean. Oil the surface lightly after cleaning to preserve your finish. Your weapon will not only be free of microscopic imperfections, but you will be able to see the difference with a beautiful finish.
