View Full Version : Deburring help

05-23-2006, 07:30 PM
I have made a 2 piece clamp from aluminum for a friend so he can mount a motor onto a bicycle. Its a 3" diameter piece with a 1.75" hole bored through it, slit in two, with threaded holes in the bottom to bolt it back together, and in the bottom half there is two recesses with holes to mount it to the engine block. I want to make it look nice for the guy. My question is how do you guys debur your parts? I have the tools to clean up the holes and files to do the outside edges, including a dremel. I would like to make the inside edges look good also, even though they'll never be seen. Thanks for any help.

Depends on the situation,most times I use a deburing tool,the little $1.98 specials found everywhere.Sometimes it's a Dremel with a fine carbide burr.

On complex parts where I also want to blend out the finish I stick it in the glass bead cabinet and let it rip.
