  1. Great video Adam! But you’re missing a whole world of different bits (at least in the woodworking world). Spoon bits! Nose Augers! Shell Bits! Not to mention the different patterns of self-feeding auger bits (Jennings, Irwin)! Self-feeding spade bits! So many exclamation points for so many awesome bits! And don’t forget your awls, the birdcage and the brad awl! The gimlet! SO MANY BITS!

    If people are interested in getting auger bits for a brace, they can be had for pennies at flea markets and often just need to be quickly sharped with an auger bit file. Woodowl makes some nice new auger bits at a reasonable price that can fit a modern 3-jaw chuck. Just never in a drill press.

    Love the video, keep it up. Also, whatever happened to the sea chest?

    1. I have about 30 bits that were my dad’s and there are some that are so strange looking. I can’t figure out what they’re for. Any thoughts on how I could find out? Is there a book on drill bits? They may even have been my grandpa’s, but I have no way to find out now. Thanks.

  2. My co-worker’s stepmother makes $95 hourly on the computer. She has been out of work for eight months but last month her check was $15,643 just working on the computer for a few hours. Go to this website… http://Job62.com
