How long did the reamer stay sharp? I see in later videos you abandoned this tapered method. Is that just because you want to use full butt length cores or were there down sides with tapered coring for forearms and butts?The Reamer
Finally received this thing. It actually works better than I could have hoped. With the small taper it cuts the hole fast without too much heat on moderately hard wood. On softer wood it cuts like butter. Took about a minute to ream the Pau Ferro in the video. I put a vacuum at the bore outlet at the left end of the head stock to draw air to cool and clear the flutes of dust.
No dry spots going to happen here. Can let the west systems soak in for a while first. Or even use titebond I guess. I plan to put the "A" joint at the small end to lock things in so to speak. We'll see how long it stays sharp.
