Looking for some advice on reaming a hole to size in glass filled nylon. Opening a hole from .258 diameter to .272 diameter. Need better size accuracy and finish than the molded hole.
Using a carbide reamer.

Found using water and Dawn dish detergent as a lubricant to be a good choice for lubricant, and makes cleaning a snap, just rinse with water.
