Farrier instructions

What makes Pro-Fit studs so different than old fashioned studs is that they are thread-free. The patented design of our Pro-Fit Studs work thanks to the smooth, tapered design of the stem, coupled with the smooth, tapered stud hole which is easily created with the Pro-Fit Reamer Pro-Fit bit.  As there are no threads within the stud hole, there is nothing that can be damaged within the stud hole, which means no tapping ever again. 

Farriers will have no extra work in preparing Pro-Fit stud holes, but they will have far fewer customers complaining about their stud holes! To fit Pro-Fit stud holes to a shoe, simply shape the shoe as normal and when satisfied, drill the shoe for the stud holes with a 7 - 7.5mm steel conventional drill bit. Once these holes have been made with the conventional steel bit all you need to do is shape the stud holes with our custom made Pro-Fit Reamer bit, drilling the hole down to the built in stopper, for the perfect, smooth finish to the stud hole. Drilling of Pro-Fit stud holes must take place on a pillar drill to ensure complete accuracy, which ensures complete security.
