« Part 90: Made a stupid mistake building my miter saw dust hood... Part 91 of Workshop Development series Part 92: SCMS Dust hood completed and installed. »

I got started with fixing the miter saw dust hood measurement mistakes. I don’t use it often, but when I do, I frequently wonder why biscuit joiners get such a bad rap on the forums… They really do help me out around the shop!

I also had to back fill my hex shank quick change drill bit sets for a couple of the smaller sizes that break easily. I wasn’t quite able to get an exact match but close enough. I went from Ryobi Ti coated bits to DeWalt black oxides. Oh well, as fast as these small bits break, it’s not like they are going to have a chance to get dull anyway!

Again, if you want more detail, or photos, check out my blogger post…

Those are pilot / countersinking bits. I have them. They have replaceable pilot bits. The regular drilling bits do not have replaceable inserts…

My Bad , I thought I had seen the regular bits somewhere that did have the replaceable bits but not sure where or who made them. I will have to try find them and let you know if I do.

I would love to just be able to replace the bit part, not the hex part.

I must admit the hex end makes for super fast bit changeovers, and VERY secure bit holding, but not the most accurate drilling as it induces some wobble into the bit. However the bit tends to follow where it starts, so the wobble stops almost instantly once it grabs in the work piece..
