Angry Lotus 7 Locost

Hi guys I am new to the forum and have been following for a couple of years now. I am currently building a locost lotus using a mazda mx5 donor. I have a problem with getting my hands on a tapered reamer for the tie rod ends from the ford to fit into the mazda wheel hub. I have managed to get them close but need the correct tool to set them correctly. I cannot believe how expensive the tool is and does nnot justify buying one, any advice will do please. Up in Scotland it is difficult to find companies that will assist with just 1 small job. The reamer needs to be 11/2" per foot or 7.15 deg if I am not mistaken.
