Instead of buying a $60 reamer, I had a tool sharpening shop grind a worn-out end mill to the 1.5"/ft taper. IIRC they charged about $20 and supplied the end mill. Only downside is that you do have to have a vertical mill or stout drill press to use it.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.
