Questionable design

February 06, 2016
So I got this ball joint reamer for a unique project I've got going on - I bought it specifically to ream a balljoint hole in aluminum. Max diameter of the hole is .7", so only the first 1/3rd of the reamer has been used The reamer is machined with a slip resistant shank, which led me to believe it was OK to use in a drill press/power tools. WRONG. Started off at 320 RPM (since aluminum) - real bad chattering. Moved down to 220 RPM - still chattering. Went to my lowest speed of 70 RPM - still chattering!! All manually fed too! This is when I decided to give up on using this reamer with power tools After the chatter session in the lathe, I noticed that the cutting edges seemed to have chatter marks on them as well, though the edges still seem sharp. I then got out a tap wrench to see if it was still usable by hand - maybe it would've been easier if the cutting edges were still good, but it did eventually cut the taper I wanted after a few minutes of manual labor Due to the issues I had with this reamer, I'm not sure if I would recommend it to anyone else. I'd have to try out the more expensive Afco reamer before I came to a final decision
No, I would not recommend this product.

Worked perfect

I used the reamer to team out my steering knuckles and pitman arm on my jeep to run bigger tie rod ends. It worked perfect just used a lot of cutting oil to make sure it stayed sharp.
Pros:
  • Cut Fast
  • Stayed Sharp
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the best reamer I have ever bought!

November 04, 2015
I used this bit to ream knuckles and pitman arms on 2 jeeps so far. You cant even tell its been used. Ive read about other reamers getting dull after only a couple holes. This bit is just as sharp as when I started. Just use plenty of cutting compound.
Pros:
  • Fast Shipping
  • This Bit Doesn't Chatter
  • very sharp
  • Stayed Sharp And Still Is
Cons:
  • None yet
Yes, I recommend this product.

Yes this is the correct taper for a '69 Camaro lower ball joint and also for the Howe 22421 ball joint. You will not need the reamer however. If you get the Howe 22421 ball joints they will press into your lower control arms and fit right into the stock '69 Camaro spindle.

You will need to measure your tie rod end to determine the taper of it. Sorry we do not have any experience with that application to know what the taper would be.

Sorry this reamer will not work for your application. The minimum size of this reamer is too large for the tie rods on your Nova.

Need ball joint reamers for a 1979 Chevy C30 Dually (2WD) For both lower and upper joints The lower joint is Aprox 1.053 inch at widest and .892 at smallest and 1.062 deep (This measurement was taken off of the ball joint itself. because the tapper dose not go all the way through the spindle hole, there is a shot section of straight cut hole (non taper) that is .696 in dia and is less than .052 deep.) The upper is .799 at the widest and .0629 at the smallest and 1.407 deep

For the 1978-88 monte carlo they would use a K5208 upper ball joint and a K6145 lower ball joint and will be for the 10 degree ball joint reamer. We offer part number 91089412 or 10680771 for 10 degree reamers.

You will have to determine the taper angle of your tie rod ends to know if this is the correct reamer for your application. Sorry we do not have a listing of the taper angle for a 1970 Dodge pickup.
