Can't remember who first posted the idea, but I have seen it here several times, ie using toothpicks or match sticks in a tap to increase size by a few.

Needed a reamer that was 5/16 and a little bit. Couldn't find any that were marked 5/16 + a little bit. Thought that I was going to have to set that project aside until another order came in, decided to try the toothpick idea. It actually took two to get the job done but it worked great.

Thanks to whoever it was that presented the idea to the board, it saved a lot of time.
