Item 1: Reamer - $90

ReamerThis newly designed reamer has an ultra-sharp five-flute spiral cut. Ream wet or dry. Since this reamer goes into the throat, use with a rat tail file is recommended.

An adjustable collar with set screw allows you to set the depth of reaming for consistent fit on the bocal. Comes with a wooden handle and an Allen wrench for the set screw.

Reamer designed by Ken Potsic.
