More Operations : Pin Cutting Operations Select Customization Option
Normally cut pin
We can supply most pins cut to lengths down to 1.00" and for some sizes, even shorter. The saw cutting operation cuts pins neatly and cleanly but most applications call for a chamfer on one or both of the pin ends.

Pin cut and chamfered
This chamferring process entails grinding down a little of the pin end around the entire pin edge so it is smoother and has a smaller diameter for ease in inserting into a hinge. The typical angle for the chamfer is 45° but that can also be specified.

All of our Mil Spec pins will automatically be cut and chamfered, but for commercial needs, please specify if you require a chamfer.
