Handling Instructions for the Unique Grinding Taper Tool
- Unpacking the Tool:
- Take the tool out of the carrying case along with the motor and the flex cable.
- Straighten the cable out and assemble the cable to the Grinding Head. Make sure the hex shaft fits in the hex slot on the Grinding Shaft. Then tighten all the way.
- Select collet size for the size of pipe you intend to taper.
- For all sizes over six inches:
- Stack the 3” LP, the 4” LP, and the 6”HP on the tool.
- You may have to open the tool wider by turning the feed knob counter-clockwise with the ¾ wrench or with the feed knob.
- Continue to stack collets on one set at a time until you get the size of collets on the Tool for the size of pipe you wish to taper.
- Lay the tool down or hold it firmly and then plug the electrical cord in and turn the tool on to see if it is running alright.
- Be sure to put the Vacuum Bag on before you begin the tapering process.
- Mounting the Tool in the Pipe:
- Slide the collets and the Tool into the pipe.
- Turn the torque knob clockwise to expand the collets inside the pipe.
- Use the wrench provided on the torque knob to tighten the collets in the pipe.
- Be careful not to over tighten the wrench
- Make sure the grinding head is off of the pipe when you turn the motor on.
- Begin the tapering process by feeding the head down slowly until the grinding drum touches the pipe by turning the feed knob clockwise.
- Slowly feed down as you turn the tool counter-clockwise around the pipe to cut the taper.
- Slowly feed until desired length of taper is reached.
- Make a few passes on that same setting to clean up the cut before stopping.
- Back the grinding head off away from the pipe before stopping the motor by turning the feed knob counter-clockwise.
- Removing the Tool from the Pipe:
- Turn the torque knob counter-clockwise to contract the collets to remove the tool from the pipe.
- Empty the vacuum bag regularly.
- Keep the tool in a dry place. Do not let moisture contact the dust.
- Clean the tool with air at the end of each day or job.
