you have pix, sir?

What kind of linebore tool you have?

Setting is setting. You have a bearing...measure the OD. The boring bar has an axis line...measure from the axis line to the actual "stick-out" of the toolbit ...and multiply by 2 = diameter.

So...OD of bearing minus "bearing crush" = mains diameter.

The best way to check is get a dialbore gauge and see. The setting tool for the bits should be able to read 5/10,000 inch.

Is this one of those that has a gauge built into it that you "dial up" the cut you think you need? Those are really JUNK boring bar IMHO

Junk ..these are NOT. These have been the best I have seen work flawlessly yet. These suckers are very accurate. It can do at least 5/10,000 inch or less.

Is one you post the same one the original poster is asking about?

Looks like your posting about your "true line" Nick... I never said those are junk. Just that if the one he is talking about is the kind I think it is, then it is a POS IMO. Wink

There is the TruLine and Porta tool. Is there a third kind? Razz

Now..this I HAVE to see. I am curious what this beast looks like.

How about some pics of this thing? Let us see it so some of us here can input on how to use it.

There is also KENT Tools which made a bar as well...

I had a German unit that was made by Stahlwille in the late 80s, but like a dumbass I traded it for a 911 engine...
The Tru Line has always been best for me..

Kent- Moore tools made the orignal "portaliner" and now pretty much the exact same thing is offered by Rocky Jennings...

This info is from another thread on these various tools from a few months ago....

Anybody has any more pics of tools like this?

There is no way doing this job here in estonia and I decided to let make a tool for that.

What would be the easiest way to do that. (not for high performance engines)
