      On the back of the tool bit is a 1/4-20 set screw that is used for adjustment. There is also a set screw from the side
      with a brass plug under the side lock screw that lochs the adjustment screw. The brass plug under the lock set screw has threads cut in it to drop in the threads of the adjustment screw. I did not take the time to draw it but if you want i will draw it for you if you want to make one. I made the boring head from a 1 3/4 piece of hex steel that i had. The hex steel also made it convenient so it could be made in the milling machine vice. If you notice there is a plate on the bottom of the head that is held in wit 4 flat head allen screws. I lock tited the threads so the screws stay in place and dont vibrate loose while the head is in use. I used the head 2 days ago and it works great.

      How do you adjust that with any degree of precision?
