    Question REAMER Tool Search

    I am new to the RC world and I am looking to install some LED's on my newly acquired Rustler body.

    While doing a search online, I saw a Reamer tool that was made by "Axial" which had step down notches on the cone blade, but when I search for it, it states it has been discontinued. Does anyone here know anything about this particular Reamer tool.

    IF NOT, which hand Reamer tool do you recommend, which gives the best performance with the most features on the tool itself. I prefer one with a cap/lid.

    Looking forward to your help.

    Thank you in advance!

    Yep, I saw the same thing when I was looking to get some tools to do my body work. Checked the lhs and online and still could not find one. I like the idea of the stepped reamer, but ended up buying a duratrax reamer instead. Worked good and did the job.

    +1 for the dubro. Had mine forever. Still sharp and even reamed aluminum a few times.
    Need more parts.

    Tamiya #42260, pricey, but a nice reamer.

    I use an integy reamer. Came with my tool set and has worked great since I got it. It has a threaded cap and a measurement scale on the side of it. Its not stepped... but it works great. Theyre all pretty much the same though.

    I so wanted to find that AXIAL reamer tool, but it seems that it no longer exists.

    I picked up one from the LHS, even though it's not what I had in mind.

    THANK YOU EVERYONE for your taking the time to drop by!

    I found stepped drill bit works great. Drill your pilot first.

    Nice thing about using the wood burner is that it made like a melted o-ring and never split or cracked.
