The EscoLock wedge-style blade lock system on Millhog right-angle bevelers from Esco Tool (Holliston, MA) has a large clamping surface and double-threaded screw to hold blades rigidly. Coupled with cutter blades that incorporate a radical chip breaker to draw heat away from the tube or pipe surface to prevent work hardening and extend blade life, the system enables the Millhog to bevel, face, and bore simultaneously without using cutting fluids.
Available for O.D. beveling, flat facing, and I.D. boring at any angle of prep including “j” preps for orbital welders, Millhog cutter blades are offered in titanium nitride (TiN)-coated and hard lube versions. The EscoLock blade holder reduces vibration and enables the blade to get under the material to pull a thick chip and produce a smooth finish.
