Center reamers are countersinking rotary cutting tools applied mostly in metalworking and can also be used to cut plastics and wood. They are often used for enlarging a drill hole and cleaning out existing burrs. Center reamers for high precision cutting purposes, such as for arbor cutting, should be maintained and used in excellent conditions to prevent generating mass ridges. There are two different styles used to make center reamers. The older models of center reamers have a cutting edge that is cut all along the metal from the center of the tool. Modern central reamers are designed with flutes or straight cuts. Center reamers are more prone to chatter and are less suited for applications that require a true center. Center reamers that are used to bore large-sized diameter holes should have more than five flutes. High-speed steel center reamers with either fluted or straight cut shanks can be used on handheld machining cutting tools
for cutting different types of general sockets. Get the best selection of center reamers at MRO Supply with products like carbide round shank reamers and high speed steel round shank reamers. Purchase from a wide range of center reamers to get the best tool for your application.
