TS-3000 BlockMate Product Details

With our BlockMate Surfacer, angle milling a set of 350 Chevy heads .100″ can be accomplished in twenty minutes, floor to floor. Changeover time between cylinder heads and blocks is 45 seconds and it takes about twenty minutes to square deck a V-8 block. The versatility of this machine is unmatched and a superb choice for any automotive or racing machine shop.

Sliding

Indicator

Sliding Indicator

The sliding indicator bracket allows quick 4-point referencing of the cylinder head in relation to the cutter plate, ensuring that the head is straight without the need for leveling. The speed of this process is unmatched in the industry.

Height

Indicator

Height Indicator

Another key feature of our surfacers is the height indicator. This indicator helps you set your workpiece height in relation the the cutter plate to ensure that you don’t crash the tool, thus ruining your head. Again, this process is very quick and allows for expedited surface milling.

Head

Cradle

Sliding Indicator

The cradle on all of our surfacers is revolutionary because it allows fine adjustment for all directions to ensure consistently precise measurement and cutting while keeping the part rigidly set in place.

As with all of our surface milling machines, all tooling is included as part of the base package. You will be able to surface all of your cylinder heads and blocks without the purchase of ANY additional tooling.
