It works best if you have a piloted reamer with oil groves cut on the stem that the bushing fits on.
If your reamers are without this feature most reamer makers will re grind your reamer with
this feature for very little. ($7.00 for solid pilot reamers and $10.00 for removable pilot reamers.
They allow more flow and more pressure to flush the shavings away.
