Not Your Average Gun Drilling or Boring Machine Shop

You may think that they all say that, and they probably do.

Therefore, it’s worth taking two or three minutes to understand our justification for claiming that you will not find better – or at least understand our approach and the way we do business. It’s the only way for us, and it has delighted thousands of customers throughout the years. We believe we have the winning formula of professionalism, advanced technology and industry expertise and it’s all at your disposal. How Confusion Easily Creeps In To A Quote The technical complexity of the specialist services available at Hone-All, including deep hole boring, deep hole drilling and honing, are unsurprisingly something of a mystery to some people. That’s perfectly understandable unless you have worked within a specialist machine shop and put in the hours learning about and perfecting these techniques.

This sometimes makes it difficult for customers who want to utilise these services. The variations of the different levels of machining available can dramatically impact the costs quoted at the initial stage but understanding the implications of those differences is not always intuitive from a brochure or website. There can be a whole host of factors that may at first appear to be just complications and cause for confusion. They can lead to a cost V quality conflict from simply specifying the level of machining, the technical specification and the overall impact on the finished component.

That is why we never just key some numbers into a spreadsheet and take the first answer it pops up.

Every Single Job Deserves Thorough Investigation Issuing quotes on request is simply a cost of doing business but it’s a considerable cost to us. This is because genuine lasting quality starts with a true and perfect understanding of the requirement. We study drawings and almost always follow up with a series of questions. Our desire to gain clarity and certainty is your guarantee that you will get what you want – not just from us but from the whole process and resulting product.

We have often seen quotes being returned quicker and at a cheaper rate than ours. If we are able to speak to the customer and explain why our costings may be a little higher than our competitors, in most cases it is because we have included additional operations after considering the overall finished quality of the component and how the results of our machining will impact our customers machining further down the production sequence.

We appreciate that for some people the cost is everything and the only consideration. We don’t go along with that because going with the lowest initial cost can come back to bite one all too often.
