I got to work in my workshop today!!! Got to 58 deg (F) so I opened the garage door and let the warm air in....... Now it late and I have a couple of "what is it?" for you. This one is a tool I don't use much but I needed it one time for a special project I was doing....... then I didn't see them around much until the last few issues of some mags......

Anyway for 50 points tell us what this is and what it is for or how it is used. Be the first person to do so and have the right answer and you win......

ED I can't tell much from the picture and I don't subscribe to workbench, but could it be a drill bit to make a mortise & tennon joint in "rustic furniture? You know the furniture made from tree limbs and branches. That what most people keep outside on the patio, but is your primary living room outfit. :D I know you don't spend money on furniture, just tools. LOL :D

Would you believe that this bit is not the one pictured on page 24(mine was made by someone else about 10 years ago) but it does the same function...... How about another hint then????? DIY might find this handy when running cable/stereo wire/lan stuff.... oh sorry I'm sure you are all wire-less now. Yes it does resemble a Forstner bit but it is not one....... so what is it?

The curved back is the big clue on this bit. It is used to drill a slightly curved hole, the joke was to drill around corners, but it's almost true. Electricians still use this type of bit.

Yes! No excuse for having a straight hole when you have this bit.....
