XCUT 7.15 degree reamer for Chevy/Ford TRE taper reaming
Edit -- OOPS: It's XKUT with a "K", sorry.
I ordered it yesterday late morning -- and got it today. Bought it on eBay. The company is only 50 or so miles from me in the same state, so the mail time isn't surprising -- but the same day service was great.
It's about $63 for the reamer, then $4.80 for shipping. Quite reasonably priced.
I haven't used it yet but it has a great reputation. I'll follow up in this thread after I have a chance to use it on my truck. My SnapOn reamer dulled very quickly.
Here's pics and you can see it comes with a plastic storage case to keep the edges protected, and it has a rubber dip coating on it to further protect it during shipping and maybe if the maker stores a bunch of them in stock.
It's a 1.5" taper per foot as another way of referring to it's taper. Both Ford and Chevy (and maybe more) ball joint studs use this taper.
