    I got mine from XKUT on ebay. Best price I could find. It was the straight cut one which only works well at enlarging existing taperes.

    Some other info I found in my search

    FWIW I think I payed something like $35 for mine (under $40 w/ shipping). I have heard the snap-on one is about the same price (I don't have the p/n off hand but you might be able to search pirate for it).

    I used Snap-on p/n r-121 to enlarge the hole in my pittman arm. It was priced well ~$35 and despite a few questionable reviews of it on Pirate, it worked well for me. I was able to do it on my lathe and suggest that a lathe, drill press, or milling machine would do a better job than a handheld drill. Foer me it was worth it, the reamer looks rough and dull when new, not razor sharp like the reamers I am used to, but it worked, and now it shows signs of use, but none of wear.
