Spade drill bit

spade drill bitThe guy who owns the small local hardware store here recommended I use a spade drill bit to better bore through wood and I'm glad he did.

It really did seem to do a better job on our sycamore mushroom logs than last year when we used the auger style.

The total cost on the new bit was just under three bucks and I think I'll store it in a mushroom kit along with the waxy paint brush and the left over bees wax.
