The G 1 Fine tool can also be used on G 1 Standard width tyres where a 1.5 mm deep flange is preferred.
The tools have the same profile all down the end of the tool and can be sharpened by grinding a small amount off the top face. Mine usually profile about 80 to 100 wheels between sharpenings.
These tools are recommended for lathes capable of low speeds, at least as slow as 100 rpm. Find the right speed for you by trial and error - too fast and the tool will not make an even cut.
To prevent any vibration in work, make a small central 'pip' in the outer end of your mandrel to take a small amount of pressure from a live steady held in the tail stock.
