ShopNotes Podcast 113 — Spittin' Out Hex Extrus...

By: Phil Huber
Check in with John's shop clean up and talk about old tools and more.

Strange things gather in workshops — and it isn't (just) the people. Hex wrenches, plastic fruit cups, nonwoven pads, bits of leather. In light of John's cleanup challenge, the cast discuss the strange and still very useful items found in their shops.

Auger bits

John, Logan, and Phil wonder if it's acceptable to cut the tapered shank off auger bits in order to use them in a hand drill. What say you?

Phil's looking for help on his router mortising jig. How would you secure the table and allow it to adjust for 2-3 settings (3/4", 1", & 1 1/2")?
