Brownells sells that tool. You may need to also get their yoke barrel reamer. Many times that yoke barrel needs to be reamed in order for the pilot portion of the face cutter to fit inside the yoke barrel. If you are repairing a gun for end shake, that yoke face is almost always peened to the point where you at least have to clean up the inner edge to get the pilot of the facing cutter to pass. Same thing applies if you are using a yoke alignment tool to make sure that your yoke barrel is not bent............tdan

The yoke barrel reamer is just a 5/16 (.3125) reamer with a handle on it. I prefer a .001 over (.3135) reamer. You nearly always need it, as tdan says.

The yoke facing reamers from Power Custom that used to be carried by Brownells and Midway have been discontinued.
