I’m starting to get some traction with this chatter tool. I bought a new cobalt bit. That old piece of skew chisel laughed at it. Not a scratch. I tried a different old piece of skew chisel. More laughs, but not from me. I rooted around and found a piece of some kind of steel. 1/4” x 1/2” x 12”. Success at last. I turned a handle and used Gorilla Glue 5 minute epoxy.

I drilled and tapped it for 1/4 – 20 tpi, tightened a screw in the threads, and use a wingnut and washers on the screw. I found a little piece of some kind of bracket for a blade. I’ll keep looking.

Here’s where I’m at with it, and a trial run on a piece of cherry. Thanks, Arlin!
