The boring bar washes away the sins of the drill getting off center.
So many people, use drills, then the boring bar, and then the reamer.
I thought that I thought of that until I read that Ed Shilen said that earlier.
What's the hurry ? As chad said use one tool to chamber(The reamer).
Speed can be the enemy when it comes to gunsmithing. Quality takes time.
If you have the finest of tools and plenty of skill you can do a chamber job faster than
with a lathe but using a drill or a boring bar or both will normally lead to a poor chamber.
Speed is the reason that I won't use a pre chambered barrel for an accuracy weapon.
the only reason speed is important is to increase profits of production barrels not accuracy.
The smith that coached me said "If you dont have time to do it right the first time, When
are you going to find time to fix it".
