    Body reamer

    I have always used a dremel to make my body post holes, but sometimes I slipped and messed them up a little. I was told to get a good reamer. Is a reamer worth it? What is a good one that won't break my wallet but will do a good job?

    I just have used a drill and as long as you measure correctly and put enough pressure it works fine.

    A reaming tool is a must have for your tool box. No need for drills, dremels, knives or anything else. You can start a new hole with the reamer very easily and enlarge it to whatever diameter you want without having to worry about going too big accidentally.

    I have an OFNA reamer and a couple other brands. The OFNA is a nice piece and not too pricey.

    I have a body reamer from Axial and it is very nice. Aluminum handle and replaceable blade. Probably have done fifty bodies with it and it seems as sharp as the day I got it. I had a cheapie DuBro unit, but the cutter spun in the handle, making it useless.
