hi, what type of replacement reamers or cutters (and other accessories) fit the old KWM Bushing Tool chuck? It has a small chuck similar to a drill press, but very small. I would like to use the newer KWM cutters. If needed, on the new KWM cutters, can the pin easily be removed from the shaft? thanks for your help/suggestions. The current cutters for this tool have a shaft of around .158 inches, and the chuck can't hold anything much larger.

You may find that the pin in the KWM cutter can slip between two of your chuck jaws. Try it. If it does, then it is out of the way and serves to keep the cutter from slipping in the chuck.

Thanks everyone, I ordered a #3 KWM cutter with pin and it is a perfect fit, the pin fits nicely between the chuck's fingers and would help prevent slipping.
