Thanks very much for that info...someone else in the Mechanic forum gave a link to a wholesale tool site with reamers that are priced even cheaper than MSC. I do have very good mechanical skills and have worked as an auto mechanic and built my own bikes over the years..however, I'm wondering if this like many other machining processes requires a hand with some experience or a "feel". It is currently my only road frame, I have no desire to render it useless. Any guidance as to how the reamer should be set up and used would be helpful before I consider doing this myself. I want plenty of cutting oil and perhaps a way to set the tool up so that it very gradually reams out to the proper diameter that I need. Any input appreciated here.
