Tie Rod End Reamer

Looking at getting a reamer so I can open up steering arms to use fj80 ends.

I am looking at the trail-gear reamer, my question is. Has anyone bought one of these and used it to ream out 50+ holes? How does it hold up? How does it cut?

http://www.trail-gear.com/steering-components Info at bottom of the page.

I will be using this for work not just hobby use so im looking for something thats going to last.

Or if you have one from a different company that has been holding up well if you could pass me on a link that would be awesome.

Thanks Guys

They sell on ebay too, and offer re-sharpening if they get dull.

Have one I purchased from them about 3 years ago. I've done several steering arms with it. Still sharp, still spins round and true. Good product.

and Marlin and Sky both make FJ80'd tie rods for STOCK steering arms, with no mention of reaming them out.
