ball joint reamer ??

seeing that i got so much info from my last two posts, i decided to ask another question....I need to make two holes into 1/2" steel plate. they will be for the tie rod ends, as u know they are tapered, anybody know the degree of taper? it's on a 58 ford, i think i heard something like #7,?? what does that really mean though? I can't run out and pay FATMAN $100++ for a reame to do 2 holes....sorry, but true.. any suggestions....I do have a lathe and mill, but without the proper size ream, i can't think of any way to do this.
