A portable welding end prep tool that performs multi-angle end preps and squares-off heavy wall stainless steel and other hard alloys without work hardening is available from ESCO Tool of Holliston, Massachusetts.
The Esco MILLHOG Mini Series welding end prep tool rigidly mounts to the tube or pipe I.D. and features the EscoLock® wedge-lock blade lock system and a cutter blade that gets under the material surface to pull a .020" thick chip without cutting fluids. Designed to transfer heat away from the surface and into the chip, the blade has a sharp edge with an aggressive chip breaker which produces a smooth end prep and prevents work hardening.
Powered by a 1-1/4 HP pneumatic motor, the Esco MILLHOG Mini Series welding end prep tool weighs less than 25 lbs. and is suitable for pipe and tube from 1-1/2" I.D. to 6-5/8" O.D. It has a self-centering mounting mechanism, uses TiN coated cutter blades, and includes an air filter, air hose with quick-disconnect couplers, lubricator, wrenches, and a metal carrying case.
The Esco MILLHOG Mini Series welding end prep tool is priced from $6,695.00 complete and is available for rental at $165/week in the continental U.S.A.
