Topic tags/keywords: aa woods sons hollow auger woodworking hand tools brace

Lets keeping this simple. ;-)

I’ve got one and looking to use it in the making of a saw bench for the legs. For the most part I get how it works just not clear on how to adjust the cutting blade on the Hollow auger. I did some googling but really didn’t find much on usage.

If anyone has experience please share.

If I remember correctly, you have the bevel pointing up towards the brace. I think I just put a dowel of known diameter and set the mark to the size and then loosened the blade and moved it until it was in contact with the dowel and the scale agreed with the diameter.

I will try to remember to look for mine when I get home. It has been twenty years since I used mine. I picked up my first lathe a bit after I got mine and it wasn’t so important anymore. :)

Never used one Joe, but I found this. Hope it helps. I’d love to see a quick video of you using it once you figure it out.

Like you I don’t get the chance to visit the shop weekdays but I’ll give it a go this week. I’m finishing up 2 try squares and then I’m getting started on the bench.

I figure if this doesn’t go well I can always make one of the construction lumber, A frame style saw benches.
