Hand reamers are used for finishing recesses. They are fitted with a great number of cutting elements, due to which the surface of the processed components quickly becomes even and smooth. The shank of this tool should be attached to the tap wrench.
Hand reamers: 7 important facts
- These devices differ depending on the intended purpose. Some of them remove the most of the excess material, with the help of the others it is possible to smooth out the irregularities and the third ones allow polishing the surface.
- Many models are made of tool steel with hard alloy elements. These tools are quite inexpensive. There are models that are completely made of hard alloys. Their advantages are high durability and wear-resistance.
- Solid devices are used for processing recesses of a certain size. Besides, in the catalogues, there are models with adjustable working parts. They are suitable for operations with holes of various diameters.
- The most popular ones are straight models. With their help, it is possible to smooth out holes that have the same diameter on both ends. It is also possible to buy a tapered hand reamer. It will be useful for processing a tapered hole.
- The size of the tool must be compatible with the parameters of the hole. If the operation requires high precision, it is better to use a new item. That is because when you use the device for a long time, the diameter of its working part gradually becomes smaller.
- When removing thick layers of the material, there is a risk of the premature wear of the cutting elements. If you want to avoid it, it is better to start the processing with a smaller tool and then use a larger one.
- It is desirable to keep these instruments in a toolbox with a lid. It will prevent their exposure to moisture, thus, reducing the risk of corrosion.
