- Feb 1, 2014Actually, I think the result would be a slightly oversized hole, but still straight. Also, I suspect that the 'flex' will compensate for very small misalignment/angle (maybe 1-2 thou, or less), so I don't even know how you'd measure it. However, I'm not a reamer designer, nor do I play one on TV. :D
That said, I've used regular length reamers and cut-down-to-reasonable-length ones and the holes have been just as straight/concentric/correct diameter, within my ability to measure them. (Someday I'll have a CMM that can measure in microns, but until then...)
