    New CYPRES Cutter Head Design?

    This is a sleeve which was designed I believe to prevent damage on rigs like the Mirage. And it is several years old already. But I could be wrong edited to add : page 24 of this link https://www.cypres.aero/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/991205_CYPRES_Rigging_Tips.pdf
