    Anybody have any feedback on Midway reamers. I think they are PTS made. How do they compare to Manson or JGS? Thanks

    Hey Don
    I just bought one for a 6.5x300wsm. I will let everyone know how it cuts when I finally get around to using it.

    I PURCHASED OVER 100 REAMERS OVER THE YEARS, MOST OF THEM JGS...JGS PEOPLE HAVE BEEN HELPFUL IN WILDCATTING AND I'VE NEVER BEEN SENT THE WRONG REAMER WITH THE CORRECT MARKINGS, SOMTHING I CAN NOT SAY ABOUT ANOTHER REAMER COMPANY. I HAVE NEVER HAD A MISSED FLUTE WITH JGS( WHEN YOU PUT YOUR REAMER BETWEEN CENTERS ON A PRECISION BENCH CENTER AND ONE REAMER FLUTE OR EDGE IS LONGER.)
    HOPE THIS HELPS

    I have bought several over the years too, Most of them old clymers, and now Manson and liked they all. Never used jgs but know folks who do and like them. I was just a little leary of the reamers from Midway they seemed kinda inexpensive. I bought it anyway and will report when I finally get around to using it. I never thought about putting a reamer on a set of bench centers and giving it a spin, I might just try it though.

    FRED T,
    I HAD A REAMER THAT CHATTERED, ONE FLUTE WAS LOADING UP WITH CHIPS. MY LATHE TAILSTOCK WAS INDICATED , AS WAS THE BARREL BORE. I BECAME FRUSTRATED WITH THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT WAS TAKING TO REAM THIS PARTICULAR CHAMBER. I DECIDED TO CHECK THE WORKMANSHIP OF THE REAMER COMPANY'S TOOL AND CUTTER GRINDER. I FOUND THAT ONE FLUTE DID NOT SPIN "TRUE' WITH THE OTHER FLUTES. I ENDED UP USING ANOTHER REAMER WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS. I SENT THE OFF-CENTER REAMER BACK FOR RESHARPENING. I HAVE USED IT SINCE WITH OUT ANY PROBLEMS. I JUST WANTED TO TOUCH BASE ON SOME OF THE HEADACHES I'VE HAD WITH CHAMBER REAMERS.
    I HOPE THIS HELPS

    I've used Clymer, Manson and Pacific. Latest was a 7mm-08 Ackley with a removable piliot.(pacific tool). Excellent tool. The midway stuff, is no more than Solid piliots Pacific reamers and the price is about what Manson would charge.

    I have 3 Midway / PTS reamers .. and they
    seem to be fine as far as I can tell ...
    The chamber is clean and the runout on at least 2 of the reamers is < 0.0004"

    Cheers
