    I respectfully disagree. Having cut maybe several thousand chambers with carbide and probably 5K+ with HSS there is really no comparison between HS and the carbide reamers ground for the custom...

    It is a bit far fetched but. I've done work for with several manufactures and the grind they put on production reamers makes them cut like the cement carbide inserts we use. There's more than one...
