This invention relates to a honing device for cylinders
and the like, and more particularly to a novel mounting
As shown in FIG. 1, a pair of longitudinally spaced
transverse bores 14- are formed through end portions
11 of said carrier. An additional pair of longitudinally
spaced bores are also formed through said carrier at
right angles to the bores ltd with the said bores 1d inter
secting the longitudinal bore 13 which extends through
carrier it}.
The elongated pinion 15 extends loosely through bore

The di?iculty was that with the wear of the abrasive
element, or the resilient element of the cylinder engaging

it is therefore an object of the present invention to
provide a novel form of cylinder engaging element where
in a channel assembly is provided for holding either an
abrasive element, or a resilient element for operative
