Crown Race Cutting Tool

To ensure proper headset performance and longevity, special attention must be given to accurately machine the fork’s crown race seat. The CRC-1 is a professional quality machining tool for milling both the outer edge and lower surfaces of the crown race seat.

  • Includes high speed steel cutters and adjustable collets to machine 26.5mm and 27.1mm crown race seats on 1” forks and 30.1mm crown race seats on 1-1/8" forks
  • Unique adjusting system allows a tight fit of the tool on any fork, threaded or unthreaded (even forks with externally butted steerer tubes), ensuring a smooth, accurate cut and proper alignment of the fork in the frame

Cutter sized for 1-inch standard is part #845. Cutter for 1-1/8 inch standard is #846.

NOTE: For sharpening services of cutting tools see Park Tool Sharpening Services. Always use cutting fluid such as Park Tool CF-2 when machining.
