I have another one so I won't need Raf's reamer. If you don't have it Chris must. I know he got it from me.

I brought my arms to a machine shop a few weeks ago and the guy told me the reamer was like $180 and it would take like 3 weeks to get it. (he didn't have the right one) He ended up doing it on the milling machine and they came out really nice. My first attempt failed miserably when the reamer shattered. Word that I got was the spiral-fluted are much better than the straight-fluted ones.

Just found this link in my favorites:

Probably a bit overkill for this thread, but I found it an interesting read.:shrug Calculator for figuring out which reamer to use too.

ive read on PBB that those dont last as long. BUT, its all about slow speed, cutting oil, and not generating heat.



Also never run a reamer in reverse. It will dull it quicker then no cutting fluid, somtimes it only takes as little as one turn running it in reverse and your DUN
