There are many good ideas here for me to learn from. I suspect that in a production shop you face off an end and then raise the tool until the tit goes away.

An iterative procedure like that probably takes too much time to be used in a production shop.  Also, it doesn't work well on tubing or parts with a center hole.

In a production shop each tool has its own tool holder, once set you don't have to do it again  :ShakeHead:
