I need to countersink a 1/2" lag plus washer going in at a 45* angle. With the washer on it needs to be 1-1/2 wide. I tried to use a spade bit and go in at a 45* angle and I almost had a serious injury, the bit spun right off the wood catching my shirt and winding up
drill a hole through a block of wood lengthwise with the paddle bit. Then cut the block on a 45 with a miter saw. Temporarily attach the angled block to the piece that needs the angled counter-bore and use the hole through the block as a guide.
Be very careful in clamping or screwing the guide to the workpiece to keep it stable.
It's not that it took him an hour to make 100 bucks, it's that it didn't take you 10 hours to save 100 bucks.
