    11 degree forcing cone reamer

    In the past, I had two revolvers forcing cones cut to 11 degrees by Tom Ball. Obviously, that was a while ago. Is there any manufacturer who sells the forcing cone cutter set, that has them in stock? Brownells was always my go to for tools, they have been out of stock for a while now. I have a few new to me acquisitions that would benefit from a trued up forcing cone. Any ideas?

    What Tom used was a tapered pipe cutter. I am not sure where Tom got them. But Travis Tool Company use to sell them. I don't know if they are still in business or not.
    I have not seen one of their catalogs for a long time.
    Correction: When Tom Built a revolver he used a Tapered pipe reamer or cutter with the barrel in a lathe. He also had a little hand reamer that he used in his stand at the fort.
    Where he could cut the forcing cone with the barrel on the frame.
    I don't know where he got that at, my bet would be Brownells.
