I came across this on another forum. Well worth watching.

I had a friend send me this same video. It is quite a cool process. Always a new approach around the corner.
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)

Drilling a square hole is nothing new. I've done it 50 years ago, same principle, only thing different, we used a hardened guide plate clamped to the top of the work piece. The cutter was 3 flute like in the video, which was mounted in a floating holder. The cutter followed the profile in the bushing. the flutes were not sharp. only the end did the cutting. Still have some bits in my toolbox.
