RQC VS. CONVENTIONAL DOVETAILS
CONVENTIONAL DOVETAILS
  • Dovetails become shorter when sharpened and must be re-centered each time.
  • Re-centering a dovetail on a screw machine is not very efficient or cost effective.
  • You will need to purchase more than one tool to reduce machine down time.
RQC
  • Initial set up is the same as for a conventional dovetail.
  • The insert remains on center in the holder even after sharpening.
  • Insert is clamped from the bottom, pushing up to the already centered reference point.
  • Can be used for a family of parts without re-centering or making lateral adjustments.
  • RQC holders are available for a wide variety of machines.
  • Shave holders are also available.
