Once I got it set up and bedded in, it took me about 8 tries at about 3 munites honing and testing to remove about .003 in about 45 munites for a perfect fit. Vid and pics self esplanitory but i will gladly answer questions.

Gonna try this link:

The short end goes in the drill chuck, tje long end goes through the clutch gear and rides on a slightly dressed down 1/2" male thread pvc fitting screwed in place
( fitting shown in other pictire). Also there is an angle iron stop there across the c g bore for a depth stop to stop the lap's cutting area just past the the bushing.

Turning the nut next to the chuck causes expansion control.

How do you ensure your 'stones' are parallel as you remove material from the race? They look like they are tapered when expanded.

Yes the split cap is tapered and is adjusted by turning the end nut. The only part in hard contact and doing the work is about a 1/8" band at the edge of the split cap. Once the cap is forced tightly to the race and spun with lapping compound, the softer copper quickly conforms to the race.

In use, you slow stroke it completly through the race each pass. You can feel the work and tell if is going out of parallel or barrel shaped at all by the torque of the drill, and spend more time at the tighter area if needed.
