 +====== REF: Tools - 130 ======
 +====== Brakes: Brake Cylinder Hone ======
 +
 +  * This zero-cost brake cylinder hone works better on small motorcycle master cylinders than the proper tool you buy at the auto parts store. It fits inside 13-15 mm master cylinders much easier and does not fly apart and scar up the aluminum cylinder bore.

 +|Use a piece of 3/8" wooden dowel about 8" long. \\ Cut a slot into one end about 3/4" long.

 +|Roll it around so it matches the direction of rotation \\ of your electric drill so it goes with the flow, \\ not against it.

Check \\ the bore frequently as it rapidly removes the soft \\ aluminium so it does not take long to get the \\ cylinder nice and smooth again.
