Evidence that visual exposure can increase understanding is apparent from this 2-hour webinar. In early 2018, Elia posted a blog entry reviewing the various drill bits and their uses. It was very well written and helpful. But hearing the words and seeing the actions really helped me improve my understanding. I think I am actually prepared to sort through my collection of auger bits, mixed between Irwin and Jennings style, and make some decisions about which to retain and which to pass on to others.
If there is time, after talking drill bits, perhaps you can discuss various types of bit braces and what to look for.
