Default Steel Grind

Repairing metal housing.

7/8" steel tube with ends slightly rounded inwards.
I need to remove all and a little more of the rounding inwards.

What material bit for either 1/4" OR 1/8" shank hand drill motor or
Dremel is best to use ?

I have many of these to do.

For steel, silicon carbide. Alox is much slower, and silicon dioxide best used on hard cheese rinds only. Diamond tends to be very variable. Tungsten carbide is good stuff.

I'd use the Dremel CBN (Cubic Boron Nitride) wheels. I bought a few to test
them and they are great for jobs with steel.

Can you just re-cut the end?
Maybe a step drill bit, or a conical bit.
(A dremel sounds a bit wimpy for the job, unless it's thin walled
SS.)

I may not understand exactly what you mean. When plumbers and
electrician cut pipe or conduit they use a conical pipe reamer or for
lighter pipe a flat vee shaped one.
