Gas Adjusting Valve Seat Honing Tool & Guide

Gas Adjusting Valve Seat Honing Tool and Guide
  • To obtain a good seat when Gas adjusting valve is closed, the seat sometimes needs to be polished to remove pits, dirt scratches, etc. This tool and guide provides a mating, aligned surface that can be spun against the seat with polishing compound on it. The tool is made by soldering two needles together back to back. The end that will go into the guide and provide the polishing surface needs to have its threads removed to enable it to be spun continuously with a drill. Using an old GAV housing, I've removed the spring to let the tool spin more freely. Some people also cut down both ends of the housing.
