Default Tapered reamer, yes again!

Hi guys, I'm about ready to ream out my front uprights to take the Maxi ball joints. I know there is a perfectly good reamer available very cheaply from Axminster but what I was thinking was that there must be several of these tools now languishing unloved and unwanted in toolboxes up and down the country. Is there anyone in the west mids who has one and would like to recoup its cost?

If there is one available I shall make it available to another builder after I've done with it.

D.

I thought so, it just seems daft that we're all buying this tool to use it twice then forget it. I know its not an expensive piece of kit but waste irritates me.

I bought some drill bits at the same time as the postage was the same/more than the item. It's also useful for cleaning the shroud on the mig welder.

Come on, it's only 3 pounds or so, and still under 10 pounds with shipping to Europe!

Hi Ash try ordering parts from Ireland and the delivery charges often come to more than the part you want

Yeah but I lived in Rochester for year..

We are spoiled up her with fantastic roads, great mountain passes, Super sights and wonderful towns...

I will gladly pay some postage rather than have to suffer the garden of england again ( cos it reminds me of my garden which is utter s.......t )
