So I'm drilling holes for my modular switching layout. The wood appears to be sound and intact, when all of a sudden.
there was a nail embedded within the wood--zero sign on the outside of the board.
Thankfully, I was using my 9.8 Makita and NOT my Hole Hawg . . and also that I was using a $3 spade bit and NOT the $22 auger.
"Yeah, the auger makes a better hole, but this is Just to hold the mods together and give a place for wiring . . . speed is more important than it looking clean."
Um . .so I guess I'm ready to lay track now. :)
