He had a =3D number of steel tapered reamers that originally belonged to his father - = =3D so at that time, 40 years ago, they were old then. I have never seen =3D another set. I have 2 plumbers pipe-reamers that will work (I think) up = =3D to a 2" hole. I've been thinking of ways to make a set of rackboard =3D reamers out of tapered hardwood. These could be covered with sandpaper = =3D and secured somehow to the wooden taper. There is also the metal =3D "dragon skin" material used in the new type rasps - that could, someway, = =3D be secured to the wooden taper. These would be relatively cheap to make = =3D and could be used in an ordinary hand brace. They would not be =3D practical in a large scale production, but for the home craftsman they =3D could work just fine. Anybody got any ideas on how to make up something = =3D like this??
