So the compact OED defines frass 1. as powdery refuse produced by wood boring 
insects. This is not desperately similar from a definition culled from the 
future OED (2025) defining frass 2. as powdery refuse produced by wood boring 
tools. Language evolves through nuance and misuse, and day to day chat should 
not be subjected to the same rigour that is properly applied to scientific 
discussion (or should it?).
