Mini Lathe Tooling
Boring is the action of enlarging an existing hole with a turning type tool. Because you are turning from the inside out, the boring tool is a different form from a regular turning tool.
As with other operations on the lathe, there are several different choices of tools that will do the job. Carbide tipped boring bars are an economical way to get started boring. They come in a set that provides boring bars for different diameters and different depths of hole. Indexable boring bars with carbide inserts are also available.
