So as with a lot of us I don’t get to live in my shop, I put family time in front of it and of coarse work (although id trade that one if I could). Anyway I had sometime in the shop yesterday and decided to grab my auger bit and drill some dog holes. My five year old, lil mini me that she is wanted to help. The auger bit cuts or grabs less after the screw tip comes through bottom, so I let her turn the brace at that point thinking she’d get tired. Nope she cut through the bottom of four of those suckers and only stopped cause mom had lunch done. She even tried to convince me if I let stand on my shop stool she could do the whole hole, I convinced her dad would be sad if I didn’t at least help. Thinking my bench value just went up not everyone has dog holes cut by a five year old. I’ll be hard pressed to build another top.
on a side note I am doing wooden screws for my vise, is 1” thick enough or am I right in thinking another inch would be better.
