Hand Reamers

Hand Reamers are available as standard in HSS with Left Hand Spiral (right hand cutting).  We also stock Adjustable Hand Reamers, Taper Pin and Taper Reamers.

A Hand Reamer has a longer taper or lead in at the front than a Machine Reamer. This is to compensate for the difficulty of starting a hole by hand power alone. It also allows the Reamer to start straight and reduce the risk of breakage.   Hand Reamers have a square at the end of the shank similar to a hand tap.  The Reamer can be turned with a standard tap wrench or an adjustable hand wrench.
