    Hi Guys
    Has anyone purchased an expanding reamer from rgdtools, if so i am looking for feedback on the quality accuracy of same.
    Don't know why i did it but i purchased a cheap and very nasty item from ebay and it's not fit for purpose so need something a lot better.
    rgdtools item looks reasonable quality but you don't know what you are going to be sent.

    Regards

    I've had a couple of their smaller ones. They're ok. Certainly not high quality, but they done the jobs I needed them to do.

    No worries Trevor
    I have shifted to plan B/C - B make a mandrel and hand scrape. Have been trying to tidy the shed and came across my delapena hone, when i cleaned the surface rust off it, it has a range of 30mm to 36mm so that's plan C
