  1. The Stanley No. 49 auger bit depth gauge, I can't even tell it's on the auger, it fits great and feels well balanced.
  2. I set it to an inch deep and drilled multiple holes in poplar, nice and clean, and the same depth, it just takes a little practice to see when it hits, because you really can't feel it hit.
  3. While I was perusing one of my favorite chair-makers blogs, I came across this review of the Wood Owl auger bits. Very interesting, especially when you get to boring at an angle, and how the triangular core of the threaded point is larger on the Wood Owl, and tends to split as compared to the Irwin core. And it makes total sense too. On the other hand the Wood Owl excelled in other areas of boring. If you are interested in this comparison, see Elia's blog below. It's a good read I think. Testing Wood Owl bits/class opening | Elia Bizzarri - Hand Tool Woodworking HANDTOOLWOODWORKING.COM I recently posted about drill bit varieties for chairmaking and got a number of comments about Wood Owl bits. I had never used...
  4. My goodness they are here! I recently purchased two Spofford braces on EBay and man are they beautiful! I first saw these braces being used by chair maker Curtis Buchanan and contacted him and asked him what the heck is that beautiful stylish brace he was using while boring holes in his Windsor seat. He replied back they were the Spofford split chuck brace, and he loved his. I got mine in yesterday and I bored a few holes with mine, and they are absolutely a joy to use. They are very comfortable, light, and they have a direct feel to them as I'm boring. It's hard to explain, but I can actually feel how deep they are boring, I think it's because of the direct transfer of energy from hand to auger, instead of the traditional braces you have some mechanics between the user and the auger, such as a ratchet or large chuck mechanism. One of the major awesome joys of this tool, is the easy release and tighten of augers into the split chuck. I can remove and replace an auger in 4 seconds, not kidding! These are the original quick release bit chucks in my opinion, or at least this split style is. This Spofford is a No. 108, as it has an 8" swing. This "Spofford" is the larger of my two beauts, it's a No. 112, and it's a 12" swing, see how the numbering system works on these? The handles are two piece handles, secured by the original pewter strap bands, they do rotate as you rotate. The amazing split chuck design. This is what really attracted me to this brace style, not too mention they are just beautiful tools, there sleek appearance, and wood treatments. Thanks for sharing my joy!
  5. Now I am excited! Hey, simple mind, simple pleasure. I ordered the Stanley No. 49 Auger Bit Depth Stop, should be here by Saturday. It'll be a very handy addition for my holes! Ya I know I could make some, but I really like these mechanical do-dads and gizmos.
  6. Got out for a bit last night and ran across this nice old set up Irwin Auger Bits in the Original box. The set is complete and looks as though they have never been used. One of the really nice things about this set was that the manual was still tucked nicely in the box under the bits. The date on the bottom of the manual on the back says 1952. They look pretty good for 63 years old. Inside the manual is in nice condition also. I think is was a pretty nice find and am glad to be adding it to my collection. These can sit next to the Keen Kutter set. Well I am off for some serious Patriot Picking this weekend. Later.....
