Park adds diamond abrasive cutter for brake-mount facing tool

Published March 10, 2021

ST. PAUL, Minn. (BRAIN) — Park Tool is offering a new diamond abrasive cutter adapter for its DT-5 and DT-5.2 disc brake mount facing tools. The company said the adapter is over 100 times more durable and on carbon fiber than the cutter included with the DT-5.2.

The adapter (part #2197) sits between the cutter of the DT-5.2 and the brake mount, and smoothly and evenly grinds the mounting surface until it is flat and perpendicular to the rotor. It is compatible with post mount and flat mount disc brake mounts.

Park made several other new product announcements:

Park said the extruded aluminum body is built to exacting tolerances and provides ample leverage for making adjustments."
