The GSR pilot guide was developed to simplify handling during thread cutting. This is because when external thread cutting with a die and die guide, the guide together with the die is inserted into the holding tool and then fixed. The guide lies under the die. After the gate has been cut, the entire construction must be taken apart again before thread cutting can continue. To do this, all 5 screws must be loosened again and the die and the guide removed. Then the die has to be put back in and all the screws have to be tightened again. This means additional annoying work and loss of time for the user.
The GSR pilot guide is the solution to this problem. The pilot guide fits perfectly on the die holder and is fixed with the corresponding locking screws. The die guides can now be inserted and removed easily and in just a few steps.
To do this, they are simply pushed into the guide slot of the pilot guide and fixed in place with a half turn. The plumb cut can be made and the die guide can then be easily removed again.
The GSR pilot guides are made of a carbon hybrid material and are 3D printed to fit GSR holding tools 20 x 5 (for dies M3 – M5) up to 38 x 14 (for dies M12). This is a special production from GSR.Made in Germany.
