  1. I had a bad oops yesterday. I was redoing a part of my turning station and dropped a MAxi-Cut bit in a Jacobs chuck with MT. I have sent the company a note to see if there is recourse today. Now I am looking at solutions so I can use the bit. The stem (elliptical 3/8) all broke off , leaving a 5/8 shaft. I am thinking I can use the bit if I can find a forstner bit extension with a 5/8 female. Only need this to be 3 to 6 inch. I have looked every where I can think of and cannot find a extension . Any ideas or places to look are appreciated .
  2. A great blog by one of my online mentors, Elia Bizzarri (ENJOY!) The following are my thoughts on drill bits for Windsor chairmaking. Bear in mind that I have used some of these bits (augers, bradpoints, etc.) daily for 15 years and other bits I have used infrequently. In these reviews, I am comparing well tuned examples of each bit. Poorly tuned bits will make an awful mess regardless of type. Spoon bits: The traditional bit of the Windsor chairmaker. Advantages – cuts clean holes even at extreme angles, thickness of shaving changes relative to hardness of wood being cut, is fun to use, operator can easily change angles at anytime. Disadvantages: Hard to sharpen. The diameter of the bit changes with many sharpenings. The shortness of the bit makes it harder to sight accurately (this can be overcome with an extension). It requires skill to start the hole in the right place or a gouge to hollow a spot for starting the bit. New bits either don’t work or require considerable tune up. Old bits can be hard to find.

  3. Folks, I need to purchase a Forstner style bit, to drill holes for chair rungs, the hole size is 5/8". My existing Forstner style bit does not eject the shavings out very efficiently and I end up with a smokey mess by the time I hit the bottom of my depth I need. What brand or style of bit would you recommend for this operation? The holes are 7/8" deep, I am using the bit on a drill press. Thanks for any help.
