  • Drill bits

    I do a lot of stack cutting is there a drill bit that cuts down on spillting the back out ? Iuse spare wood to put on the bottom and that helps a lot but still have sum slitting . i use a lot o veneer in the middles of my stack cuting was just wondering if there is a bit that is better than most ?

    No real difference that Ive noticed. It does help to run your drillpress fast, and back out to clear chips partway through, and let it DRILL the hole, not punch it through. Go easy on the last little ways before it exits seems to help to, and the scrap under it helps the most. Dale

      I was really surprised with the difference on the bottom of the wood when I just increased the speed of the drill press. I also use a scrap piece of wood under the wood when drilling.

          I am using a small Micro Mark drill press at about 4500 Rpm for the small #72 - 1/16 drill bits. I didn't like running my big drill at high speed all the time.
          The exit holes are fairly clean but I still run the piece over my Sand flee to clean up the bottom before cutting.

                This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                Cute Pattern.
                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar.

                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
