Carbide Cutter Replacement

Q. How do I replace my carbide cutter? I recently ordered a new carbide cutter (OT1010-012 REG) for my Outside Neck Turner. In the plastic bag with the new carbide cutter, is a small piece of lead shot. I don’t remember seeing a ball like this when I received the new Outside Neck Turner. What is the ball for and where does it go?

A. The small piece of lead shot should be put in the hole of your Outside Neck Turner head before you re-insert the set screw which locks the carbide cutter screw in proper position. This lead shot will protect the outside threads of the carbide cutter screw.
