Default Re: Storm boring bar

Check out the pictures of this Storm model S9 on ebay. This model appears to have extensions for deeper bores and an assortment of bore guides. Appears to be missing hand crank. The boring bar hold down clamp has a bridge attached to it that my S8 does not have.

In the kit is a red ACE fixture. Anyone know how that is used with the boring bar?

The Ace fixture is a connecting rod tester. It is used to determine if the rods are bent or twisted. I have a Sunnen equivalent. Comes in handy when working with older engines.

Default Stormizing Book and CENTERFOLD

Thread Revival!!! Last week I purchased a "STORMIZING" book off an auction site and just finished making a PDF of it. Informative and has several pictures of the Storm S 8 boring bar mounted. It also discusses how to measure and sharpen the cutters. The sharpening jig would be nice to own but the chance of one of these showing up is mighty slim. The book also shows other Storm products. The sharpening procedure assures the uniform length of the 6 cutters and therefore prevents the threading of the bore. Send me a PM with your email address and I will send you the 46 page PDF that is 7MB size. If anyone has other information such as a manual on the S8, I would appreciate a copy. John

I overcame the head adjustment issue by cutting a slot in the end of the tapered cutter adjuster. Now I can take a cut and back the head out and advance the cutters from the bottom of the bore with a screw driver, tighten the locking plate, then take another cut without removing the whole thing. Works really good.

Default Manual for Storm S boring bar

Have anyone of you come across the instruction manual for care and operation of the S series boring bar?

I am fixing to dust off and sharpen up my S8 and wanted a little extra help from the manual.

Thanks,
John

Between the 2 books in the link above I gathered enough info to build this sharpener and used it on the small cutter. The motor and blades are from a Harbor Freight Circular saw blade sharpener.
