SUGGESTIONS FOR USING KINGPIN HAND REAMERS
In general, kingpin reamers are intended for hand use only.
Using them with power tools can cause damage to the reamer, the work piece, or yourself!!
Select the proper reamer. Adjust the size if needed.
Mount the workpiece securely, such as in a vise. Attach a tap wrench to the reamer's square shank. In some cases,
it might be easier to mount the reamer to the vice and turn the work piece.
Align the reamer with the hole and begin turning (clockwise for right hand cut reamers).
Apply even pressure while turning.
Generally, using a cutting fluid will improve your surface finish and prolong the life of the reamer.
Do not turn the reamer backwards even when removing it from the hole.
Don't take too heavy of a cut; .002 - .005 per pass is typical, maybe more if reaming easy material.
