Picked this up in Ruckersville VA a few weeks ago… Looked like it has enough metal to grind down to under the pits. I was right Almost 1 3/4″ across. Careful use of belt Sander outside then a drill mounted drum on the inside. Touch up the tip with the Dremel rotary tool. Not easy…
Went to visit inlaws in Ruckersville VA last weekend. Fiber Fest on Saturday. Antique hunting on Sunday They gave me a discount on the barn boring machine that I couldn’t refuse. And I got a 1 1/2″ nose auger. Go make something.
