Has anyone had any experience with Fisch bits, specifically their auger bits? I have been looking for a source for auger bits. What I see on ebay and Amazon is disappointing. Rusty, still have wood chips in the cutters and flutes, broken spurs, etc. The only place I have found with a decent selection is Highland Woodworking. Their product line features Fisch Jennings pattern bits, and a three piece set of 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 inches is $119.99. A little pricey, but if they are good quality I don't mind that too much.
Ok, back to a bit of woodworking. Now that the internet "issues" have been fixed, I might be able to post a few items.. I got holder blank #2 into the clamps this morning Only needed three chunks, this time around. Will let this sit awhile. Now that a certain machine is about ready to go.. I might make use of this yard sale find. As for maxi-mouse? meh, save it for saw plates. Next, needed to cut the sides to match the holder. Ran a pencil around a bit, then a combo square to mkade some lines.. Plan is to cut along the line. Then, add the smaller piece to the holder already made. This will be the "bottom page" of the book. Needed to add some slots to the holder. Marked a couple lines where each shank was, cut a knife line to guide the saw. Then saw as much as I could. Then use a couple chisels to chop the waste away... Something like these two. Small chisel to chop, 1" chisel to pare away the junk. Finally got all the slots chopped and pared.. These slots will allow the bits to be raised up enough to be taken out of the holder. Did some trim to fit on the narrow sides and end pieces. A spot or schmear of Elmer's, and some 1" brass nails to add each side piece. Then...more clamps, including one to pull things into almost square... The one at the diagonal. Even using the end vise and a benchdog to help out. Will let this set a while as well......bench is a bit too full right now, anyway... If'n when I can see the top of my bench again...I'll start drilling the second holder.......have a different scheme to try out, drill wise. stay tuned
have a panel all glued up Just some more thin Oak. Have all four corners joined up on the box. Was using it to set the glue up on. Some came out better than others. Stand it up for a moment.. These weren't too hateful. Seemed the more I worked on this, the better each corner got. Laid it back down, on the new panel(for now) and tried a layout of sorts have a few others to bring to the shop, but I think this might work. Maybe some grooves to hold them in place? Have a couple more blanks to joint, glue up and trim to size... Some donated maple. As for that plane that keeps trying to photo bomb this? Will need this to make a few rebates. Maybe set it to allow a bottom to set in the box?? So far, so good...might stay tuned...
