Honey-dos...never end...the Boss went out and bought an "Umbrella" to use on the new front porch.....needed a high tech way to drill a hole..

Pexto # 8012,   12" sweep brace..with a Craftsman Expansive bit..

Adjusted to match the diameter of the "cap".   Works great...until the thread "snail" runs out of the wood, and the bit stops cutting....small chisel the knock the remaining "washer" of wood out the bottom.....then install the umbrella's post..

Added a wire tie to hold this to the post...may replace with a couple screws..later. 

We can crank to open it, or crank to close it up( when the winds get too high..) as need be.

 

Afraid to ask what is next...
