The main advantage of V-Lock reversible tool tips is that, in the V-tip race, the reversible tool tip is ground to a 7° angle pointing downwards. Accordingly, these 7° are machined into the clamping bracket. When the Torx screw is tightened down, the reversible tool tip is pulled downwards and backwards at the same time, thereby forming a stable unit with the clamping bracket. This means that the cutting pressure exerted on the cutting tip is absorbed by the clamping bracket rather than by the Torx screw.
