After completing the Countersink and Counter Bore Sharpening Fixtures made me think what other cutting tools I have that needs a special fixture for resharpening, after looking through all my fixtures the only other fixture I needed was one for sharpening chucking reamers, I came up with this design and built this tool I call a Reamer Sharpening Fixture, I now have fixtures to sharpen most any cutting tool I own except for taps, but taps aren’t that expensive and in my opinion aren’t worth the effort,
This tool was made from a variety of steels which includes 1018, 4140 Pre-Hard and O-1 Tool Steel, these steels were chosen for their particular application and durability, reamers from 1/8” to 1.125” can be resharpened, this fixture is not for sharpening the diameter of a reamer just the end cutting edges, this fixture was carefully and precisely made with precision ground surfaces, this tool looks and performs as well as intended.
I have included multiple photos of the machining processes of making this fixture along with a demonstration video showing the reamer setup and sharpening procedure.
As always thanks for looking and happy machining.
