As I work on it on the left end of bench still is usually on the right end of bench. This way I can work while waiting for spirit to come out and keep an eye on it while I work.

This one is now flat , straight and with no wind on both sides. On to the next one.

Started pierced parts. First holes are actually part of design and need to be precisely perpendicular therefor the use of two squares as reference.One can see on second photo the major superiority of auger bits compared to all other types, chip ejection.

Next set of holes are all to just waste material prior to chisel work or access holes to insert fretsaw blade. Another example of auger versatility, the fact that they come in 16ths of an inch. Lots of drilling now. Who needs a gym?

I feel worn out again! :lol: Love the work Cas. Always wondered why some one would use bits and a brace instead of drill and twist drill bits. Now I know! :handgestures-salute:

 

( As a side note I did stick a auger bit into an old 1/2" double handle all steel B & D drill from the 50's. I needed a 7/8" hole run thru a 12x12 beam in my house to run wire. I'm lucky I still have arms! ) :)

Actually before drilling all of these holes a little chisel work is called for so the edges of material are not split from the bit on the overlapping holes. Pieces is going to be planed again but best to avoid that damage.

Thank you. For working in wood there are no advantages to use a twist bit unless it is a brad point bit. An auger bit requires no pressure since screw point will pull it into the wood.  It will always go where it is aimed unlike a twist bit which can be deviated depending what kind of grain it finds. The combination of the tall brace with a long auger allows for more accurate holes in regards to level or plumb since one is to the side of tool and can visually see how it is aimed. Leaning over an electric drill putting pressure on a bit allows quite the contrary. Bits never overheat since speed is slow therefore edges will last for hundreds of holes before needing sharpening. An electric drill and bit in thick ,dense hardwood like this will overheat bit on the first couple of holes rendering it useless. Also no noise or flying dust. Just peaceful drilling :rolleyes:.

As for your experience in using an auger with a drill, I actually witnessed many years ago someone breaking a wrist like that.

Thank you. I am glad you and others enjoy it. One of my purposes in life has always been not only to carry on what I have learned but more importantly to bring it to light. Perhaps it will inspire others, but in the very least all of the phots taken will one day when I am not around to be asked questions, will be looked at by others specially by my children and grandchildren and be a great source of information. I many times have questions but sadly the ones who could answer them are no longer here and they did not leave any photos or instructions. I have only the precious time spent with them to reflect back on, and with that and the work they left, attempt to answer them as best as I can. Technology is not all bad . Its another tool, one has to learn how to use it properly.

She is beginning to smile at me now. Time for some chisel on this side.

Holes are only drilled as far as screw in auger will pull it in. Since yoke will  be tapered in thickness from  about 1-7/8” on bottom to about 1” on top as one planes back holes emerge free of tear out.

lots of planing again.
