    I have the snap on version. Good enough quality for non production use.

    I am in Gloversville....45 mins away.
    If you are only going to do one one conversion buying the tool may not be the way to go. Any automotive machine shop or racing guys shoud have one. Only takes a few mins to ream the hole to the proper taper.
