A customer was removing the hardened steel jacket and ceramic insulation from the heating elements on a flat iron in two time-consuming, unpredictable operations.
A special adjustable Genesee hollow mill was designed to simultaneously remove the steel jacket and ceramic insulation without damaging the inner Ni-Chrome wire.
The tool also includes a special shank with drive pins and a ground hole for mounting the tool over the spindle.
