Loved the hole drilling stuff, that's useful. Thanks again mate.

Raza says:

with the forstner bit you can just chuck up the original bit and lower it into the hole and lock it in place to ensure the workpiece is in the lined up correctly. then you just clamp the piece down however is necessary then unlock the press, and chuck in the new size bit

EveryDad DIY says:

some great tips there, I have never seen the dowel use to fill a hole before re drilling. I do have a homemade awe tho ,mine is an old small chisel though. thanks for sharing.

JusBidniss says:

It seems you'd have to be really careful to not overtighten the screw in that fence. Countersinking that deeply into melamine, especially a piece not that tall (so not a lot of surrounding 'meat'), even with flat washers it's pretty thin there. Seems like it should snap like a cracker, or at least warp under tension?

Hi Colin, I am in the process of setting up workshop in my garage, I moved all tools from my shed because 150 meters from my house, and garage only 10 meters from my house. I love your YouTube channel, have learned so much by watching it. My question, do I need a belt sander, I have a orbital sheet sander, I made the router table from watching your channel , turned out pretty good and I am very happy with it thanks to you Colin, I am a 70 year old retired male and love D,I,Y,

don knotts says:

If you need to enlarge an existing hole, use the same size bit in the chuck and lower the bit into the hole. The workpiece is now located. Clamp it to the table. Now drill with the larger bit.

Andy Pitz says:

Washers to draw good lines: classic Knecht! Love the video thanks Colin

Bill Carroll says:

Some clever tips there ๐Ÿ‘
Cheers, mate ๐Ÿ‘

Terry Evans says:

I use various methods to find centers. If it is round stock I place it in my lathe. I recently started making pens and bought jaws that hold square stock on my lathe, that's another method. I also use a center finder I made from a 6" square and an old straight edge. Loved the washer idea you demonstrated. I'll use it in the future. Thanks!
