I think that I have already picked up three instances in this thread where the word 'frass' (insect faeces) has been used to >describe woody debris. It could inadvertently slip into common mis-usage.

Isn't frass the woody debris a wood-boring insect leaves behind as it bores, not faeces. So using the word to describe the sawdust left behing by a drill may not be so wrong.
