I believe I had already mentioned that the Factory Made Reamers use a 7mm Reamer on the end; you would have to cut down the Reamer and do what is needed to mount it in an old Glow Plug.

The Reamers can be purchased from any company that supplies stuff for Machinest. There might even be a Company in your area.
The draw back is that if you only buy one Reamer from the supply company there is a shipping charge if you do not buy one local.

When I started off making the longer Reamers I was not using a Glow Plug Body to mount the Reamer in; see thumbnail.
But, it was a lot of work to make them that way.
