Default Reamer .311

On section 25-02 steps 5, 7, 12, it requires a .311 reamer to make the dimension of the holes just right. but I am struggling to find a .311 reamer to do this. I have a 5/16" (.3125) reamer but I'm uncomfortable making this substitute. Does anyone have any pearls of wisdom on this?

Any machine supply company has reamers in any size you specify. Have you checked with Avery, Cleaveland and others for the .311? Call them.

Check out post#4 in the thread below. Our club will rent you the tools including a .311 reamer for $25 +shipping (+- 12.50 each way usps priority). Not certain it will work on a 14 but if its the same as a 7 more or less it should fit. Check out pics and call me if interested 702 two seven 8 zero 273.

Grainger has them, either straight or spiral flutes. Here's the straight:http://www.grainger.com/product/GRAI...Code=P2IDP2PCP. Technically .3115 but I don't think 5/10,000ths will should bother you.

Actually Van's replied to the other thread mentioned above that we need to use the .311 , not the .3115 reamer. (Corrected this post as not to confuse anyone.)

Default Reamer

mscdirect.com, variety of .3115 reamers ranging from $20 to $90. The cheaper ones are fine for a one time use.

No, the recommended reamer size is .3110.
