A boring hone should not be confused with a flex hone. The boring hone has the stones mounted solid to a rack and pinion arrangement that allows the hone to be precisely sized and expanded.
After reading the honing instructions I found out that I really needed a long reach micrometer to ensure the stones remain flat.
My first idea was to hone the block in a tub of kerosene resting inside the parts washer. Once I got it setup I found that there is a lot I did not like about it.
My plan B is to mount the hone in the drill press. This way I can set the speed using the belts and limit the stroke using the dept stop. It does make recycling the kerosene harder but that is a minor compared to what is gained.
