Brass Tools 1

Vol 17 #1, Feb. 1990 - Brass tools 1

Extruder flange mounting surfaces, die channels, lips, and chill rolls are often scratched and nicked.

One solution is to provide a variety of brass tools and leave them around the end of the extruder. 1" to 2" wide x 6" to 12" long x 1/8" to 1/4" thick brass flat stock, with one end ground sharp, works well. Brass or bronze putty knives can be purchased.

Set hard and fast rules for operators - NO STEEL TOOLS WILL BE USED AROUND CASTING ROLLS OR DIES.
