    My New Custom Huber

    First Time Reaming Any Advice.

    I ream a lot of pipes doing restoration. Here is a pic of my tools. The best tamer is the all metal one and the little old timer knife for light shaving. The trick is to go slow and straight. Avoid the rim so as to not cut into the wood. The senior reamer is good, but you tend to miss cake at...
