My neighbor had an apple tree loaded with fruit so I decided to make applesauce and can it for the winter. Since I don’t have one of those crank apple peelers, I decided to make my own power peeler with the drill and a spade bit. I clamped the cordless drill down to the counter, and used a spade bit to hold the apples. I went through this full bag of apples in about 45 minutes.

Haha love it! I do have one of those crank peelers, but your method seems a lot more effective.

I shared that video on my facebook. Somebody suggested the lathe and my wife immediately nixed the idea of mounting fruit on the lathe!

Great idea, sir! Will it work on taters, too? Butternut Squash?
