These simple, affordable, one-piece taper reamers can be used for several woodworking tasks. The small reamer (3/16" to 3/4") is useful to rustic furniture makers for back-tapering holes for through-tenon wedging, as well as for general mortise tapering, being complementary to our pro taper reamer because of the overlapping size range.
First-time Windsor chairmakers will find the large reamer (3/16" to 1 3/16") indispensable for tapering leg sockets. The bits are 3 3/8" and 5 1/2" overall respectively with a 5/16" hex shank. The included angle of 12.8° on both reamer bodies matches the tenons made with the Veritas Tapered Tenon Cutters.
Designed for use in an electric drill, these tools may also be used in a traditional brace with an adapter.
