Roy was using one on his show last night

Barry Irby
In the one he had the blade was a tapered piece of metal and was loose. The shaft was tapered with a slot and the blade fit loosely in the slot. He drilled the hole with an auger bit in a brace, using a sliding tee bevel to site it in. Then he tapered it, mentioned you could correct the angle of the hole to some extent.

His tee handle shaft did not include any relief on the cutting edges and it clogged quickly. He commented it would cut you so be very careful cleaning out the debris. Seemed to cut on both edges. I though cutting some relief space into the wooden taper on both sides would be good, but I don't know. Maybe you can look up the show somehow.
