Description

Smooth travel was our main aim when redesigning these points so we have made a host of small improvements to these points to make them silky smooth. The main improvement is a burnished surface on the inside of the barrel which gives it an almost mirror like finish and the sliding surface of the point is now ground in a separate operation rather than cut on a lathe making it a lot smoother. The top lip of the barrel has been given a large lead in radius making the surface of the point and barrel meet over a larger area which helps the glide and the slots where the grub screws go have also been chamfered inside and out so that they can't touch the bearing surface of the point and make it gritty. One of the only problems with the TiN points was that the tolerances were so tight that unless the point was kept very clean they began to feel gritty, so we have opened up the tolerance slightly to make the point more dirt tolerant. Other improvements include: We have changed to Vacuum hardened stainless steel for ultimate durability and corrosion resistance. A shallower counter bore and longer thread on the barrel to improve compatibility with other manufacturers blades. A chamfered dead stop in the barrel designed to give a positive surface for the blade to butt up against. This dead stop has a chamfered edge to make it easier to feed your wires through and less likely to rub on the wires causing a short.
