TO" FROM THE EXPERTS
work can only be done by a competent operator with the proper tools.
CC Specialty Tools are the very best tools available at any price.
Many of the top riders, tuners, and technicians everywhere use CC
Specialty Tools to set records and to beat competition.
The most successful people we know are the most patient who will not
overlook the smallest detail to achieve perfection. Practice
quality in your work first, then speed will come as you become
familiar with tools and
working conditions. CC Specialty Tools are a completely new idea and
operate very quietly and smoothly, (not like the big noisy tools we
have been using in the past.) The guy who makes the most noise and
the most chips fly does not always go the fastest at the race track.
He usually spends more time trying to correct the cuts he has made
and less time really porting and polishing. Most
aluminum will cut better at slower speeds (in
the small areas in which we have to work). One thing that happens
when you run
too fast, is that as heat builds up, metal starts to harden in
makes it cut uneven, leaving hard and soft spots. Immediately after
this, aluminum starts to melt into your cutters. Generally
down and make precise, definite cuts (you
have plenty of power to run slow). Learn to use the speed control to
your advantage. Use it somewhat as you would the throttle on a
motorcycle or a vehicle; slow down in corners or tight places. Many
metals cut better at different speeds, so find the speed that works
They will even vary from cylinder head to cylinder head. You can
also eliminate most of the aluminum build-up in tools by running
slower (below the melting point). Dip the cutting tip in porting wax.
Waxes will not dissipate as quickly as oils, etc. Liquids also have a
tendency to work up tools into the hand piece. Should you have
build-up, keep a soft piece of iron to run the cutting tip across
slowly to remove build-up. Dip in wax before continuing.

do you recommend for cutting on larger aluminum intakes, bearing in
mind that some parts of the intakes are also plastic and composite

porting intakes we recommend a kit set up such as the #20
as a starter. This kit has everything needed to start porting
aluminum intakes. Remember you will have full
any RPM with
our drive motor, so you can run the cutting bit slow,
and not risk melting or distorting the aluminum or plastic. This is
not possible with high RPM grinders and pneumatic tools.
porting larger intake manifolds, with longer runners, you may get
better use out of a 2MC kit setup such
as www.ccspecialtytool.com/cylinder-head-porting-kit-d2mc .
The 2MC has larger bearings and spacing to allow for close
Specialty carries a wide variety of carbide cutters / burrs. Our
remove a large amount of aluminum or plastic composite with
ease. We also have a selection of diamond or spiral cut
burrs www.ccspecialtytool.com/carbide-cutters-14 in
lengths from 2" to 6".
