Am I the only one who thinks the hunter tools...

I purchased a #3 and tried it out on 2 boxes.

I found the "sweet spot" while I was cutting the inside on the lid. I was not at all pleased with the cut. I needed to clean it up with my bowl gouge.

I then moved over to the bottom, I had my doubts with the short length and wimpy diameter, but I figured I had nothing to lose at this point. I started out by using a forstner bit to remove most of the waste. Then grabbed the hunter to clean up the sides and bottom. It didn't take long to figure out this was not the right tool for the job. Darn thing started chattering like crazy. I wound up using a half round scraper to clean up the insides and bottom.

I thought it might be me so I tried it on a second box, same results.

Anybody want to buy a slightly used hunter tool?
