Boring is used to achieve greater accuracy of the diameter of a hole and can be used to cut a tapered hole. Boring tools can provide adjustment precision as fine as .0001 inches. There is a large variety of sizes and styles of boring machines. Boring operations on small work pieces can be performed on a lathe, while larger work pieces are machined on boring mills.

But purchasing several different machines for individual tasks can take its toll on the bottom line. Manufacturers often look for a machine that can do more than one task with a minimum of downtime or adjustment. A wide variety of milling machine tool holders exist for this very reason. For example, multiple angle settings and standardized collets (such as the ER
