Left Hand Helix Reamers

Left Hand Spiral Reamers are available in Carbide, Carbide Tipped, HSCo and HSS in all lengths.  Stub, Standard, Long Series and Extra Length.  Please note that Left hand Spiral Reamers are right hand cutting.

Use Left Hand Spiral Reamers for through holes. A Left Hand Spiral Reamer pushes the swarf ahead of the Reamer and out of the hole. This reduces the risk of scarring the work piece and reduces the chance of damaging the reamer.  The left hand spiral also helps to pass interruptions in the hole such as cross holes or keyways.

Left hand spirals are excellent for reaming hard materials.

Available with Straight and Taper shank.
