    Default Drilling A Square Hole, MUST SEE

    I have to say that this is a first for me other than using a mortising chisel.
    However ............ not going to work with a hand drill or light duty drill press.

    It`s a Watts drill. The original patent was applied for back in November 1916 and the patent, #1241176, was granted September 25, 1917 to Harry J. Watts of Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania.

    I'll be........... I guess they never gained popularity, I've never seen them in any tool catalogs.

    It figures that it was invented here and reinvented years later across the pond.
