    Forstner bit extension

    Today a friend needed an extension for his Forstner bits
    I used 1018 cold rolled rod 1 1/4" by 24 "bored on 1 end to fit the bits then drilled and taped 4 holes to 3/8" by 16 TPI the other end is turned down to fit his 3/4" drill chuck

    This is nice. I should make one "just in case".
