« Part 1: Ultimate ball chuck Part 2 of Four layers ball series Part 3: Making first hole »

The idea is to do holes and internal cuts with just one tool. Here is what I did:

5/8 spade bit is painted black to make a drawing on it.
.

Made all the cuts with dremel using cut-off disks. On left is a tool holder (was a bit a challenge to make it from steal)
.

one cutting side
.

other side
.

left side of the tool has cutting edge on the bottom
.

Centering the tool.
.

First cut almost as deep as 2 inch
.

view of the “undercut” after i made a few holes.

Hopefully the end result will be shown on the next blog

This looks absolutely brilliant Yuri. I wonder if it could be used as a handheld tool? This is a real innovative breakthrough in tool design for this type of work. Congratulations for coming up with this solution which shows a lot of expertise and creative thinking. I’m looking forward to your next blog on this.

I echo Mike’s comment.

This is design ingenuity at work.

Something special, Yuri.
