George Vondriska teaches you how to adjust and set the auger on your benchtop mortiser so that it is in the proper position to make effective cuts for mortise and tenon joinery. Using a dime to set the shoulder on the hollow chisel, you can feel out the correct projection necessary for the auger on your specific machine.
