Chris, GGs

If right twist bits remove material then maybe left handed bits are for
replacing it. Possibly a Lie-Nielsen ancestors attempt at an April 1st joke.

A properly serious thought. Left twist bits, why? Or, alternatively right twist
bits, why? Is there a mechanical advantage to right or left twist bits,
depending on whether you are right or left handed?
