This tool reams the arm stump and leg holes in the seat to a six-degree taper. It also works for reaming the arm stump holes in the arm. The blade tapers from 3/8″ to 1 1/4″ and is 1/16″ thick. See Jennie Alexander’s website for instructions on making your own. Developed by Richard Starr.
To keep up with the competition, the blade is now twenty-five percent thicker (1/16″), and the slot is machined for a more precise fit. A set screw has been added to adjust the depth of cut.
Reamers — $70 each
Custom reamers are available in eight degree tapers, eleven degree tapers and custom sizes for $95 each. Contact me to order.
