    Thanks for the sources! I ended up finding a circle track shop in town with the correct reamer and they'll ream them for $5 apiece...once they find the reamer. The shop was, errr, not the most organized and the guy couldn't find the correct reamer while I was there. Maybe tomorrow.

    There are some HSS pipe reamers that have enough allowance to modify to suit some of the standard tapers you desire. That would save you the cost of the blank(s).

    KENDALL: That is a fair price. About 15 years ago I would have paid that much if I could have found one, instead I had a local machinist make me one and it was more than that.
    As a funny side to the story a friend of mine was telling me how he couldn't find such a beast. I let him go on about his searching and then I asked if he had asked me before doing all of his searching and he said "No, do you know where I can get one" I replied that you are talking to the only man in Whatom County who has one. He said "shi*, I wasn't even going to tell you about my search as I didn't think you would know either"
    Good luck on your search.

    tapered reamer source?

    I need a tapered reamer to ream some spindles for larger ball joints. I'm told it's a 1.5 inch/foot reamer (which would be just over 7 degrees). I found one source at a stock car supplier..$78, yikes. Anybody have a cheaper source?

    Thanks!
