Auger drill bit stop DIY post
in less than an hour!

Yesterday Brit Andy posted some pictures of deep stops for auger bits, I do have a deep stop as you can read in his blog, but I always like to take the challenge of making tools that everyone else can make after and so I spend an hour today, and here comes the result.

You can see the full DIY on the blog here: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/26269



Here the drawing after writing with Andy.


Pictures:
1. Mounted and ready to use.
2. Setting the deepness.
3. Drill (the deep stop will turn with it).
4. When there are touch down stop.
5. The parts are a dowel, a piece of wood and a screw and nut.
6. Here my Eclipse stop that started the discussion.


As you could see this is a fast and easy project, I spend more time making the blog than the deep stop….

_Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps some stops,

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Here is the upgraded Version II
Telescopic sight, compass to find the hole, laser next to the hole…, background music pod, reflex for safety…
I call this version bull’s eye.

Just for the once that thought I fell asleep..
Yes you may laugh.

Mafe,

If I am correct, doesn’t the stop spin with the bit?

If so, would it be effective on thinner pieces of stock? I think it might drop down when going out over the edge and then hit the side of the piece.

Just wondering…........

Hi Mads,
Another idea for your Mark II setup : you could also add a gyroscope, or failing that a USB connector to use the gyroscope of some smartphone or another.
You could also make a fortune by writing a smart phone application to tell you if your brace is vertical.

Ok Mads it works, and as always cleverly made, but I see another way or two. But in the end, in a drive to get things done I would probably use masking tape and consider it good enough.

Ok I’m ready for the flack….......

Hi guys,

KnotCurser, since the bit is hand powered the speed is not so fast that it will get stocked any where so I consider it not a problem at all, but yes if you are really fast and the hole is really close. But you can move the stick in and place it close to the drill in this version.

Fabrice , gyroscope yes the wedding ring…

ken90712, I might just stay with version one…

Jim, then it was done for a good reason ;-)_o~

Ken, I look forward to see your ideas… I also use a piece of masking tape, even on my electric powered drills.

Randy, it do spin and that acually looks quite cool.

Thank you guys for the comments, this little post did manage to bring some smiles, so a special thanks to Andy,
Mads
