Welding End Prep Tool Fits between Small Boiler Tubes

An air-powered, right angle welding end prep tool that is designed for stainless steel tubes and others with a high percentage of chrome and fits a "Dutchman" is available from ESCO Tool of Medfield, Massachusetts.

The Esco "Ground" MILLHOG® is a right angle drive I.D. clamping welding end prep tool for water wall boiler tube panels from ½" I.D. to 2¼" O.D. by ½" thick and can fit between tubes having only a 1½" radial clearance. Ideally suited for end-prepping stainless steel and highly alloyed tubes, it has a rigid wedge-style blade lock system for chatter-free operation, uses TiN coated cutter blades, and can perform any angle of bevel.

Providing self-centering, torque-free operation, the Esco "Ground" MILLHOG® features a push-pull clamp and release mechanism that disengages easily and has totally sealed construction and can be used in any orientation. Elimin- ating hand grinding, this pneumatic tool produces clean, consistent end preps, without cutting fluids, to help provide X-ray certifiable welds.

The Esco "Ground" MILLHOG® is priced at $3,995.00 and is available for rent at $162.00 per week in the continental USA with overnight shipment.
