    Pretty clever, reminds me of the way the rotor in a Wankel engine moves

    You are using Bonetti's defense against me, ah?

    I thought it fitting, considering the rocky terrain.

    I tell you what's snazzy mate... I got a quote for some work on my house. An email was sent from the managing director of the company, one Assel Snazzle (yes, that's a real name)! I'm still in stitches!

    Sorry for the tangent, but you reminded me Wayne!

    It is called rotary broaching. you can do that on lathes also. Inside and outside lots of shapes very cool.

    As for that video, I haven't seen that before. I guarantee that is not a cheap attachment, but neat!

    I've been looking for a square-hole drillbit forever. Guess that one wouldn't fit my makita tho ..
