do you have the bits for your auger - we still use ours at the ranch - course cordless drills are nice too.

You can do some damage with a brace and a spade bit.

Here's mine, Sarge.



Notice the shoulder pad, so that you can really put some body weight behind it.

I saw my Dad drill many times with it. If you know what your doing, you can really make the sawdust fly.

Painless,
That drill looks close to the one I have in my basement. I still use the thing too. It works alot better than a cordless drill for alot of things. Mine has a straight wood handle instead of the pressure pad on it. As far as old tools that is all I have unless you count my WWII mess utensils, and my old Gillette Super Speed safety razor. Thanks Arvin

OP, yeah I was thinking of adding a shoulder pad myself. there is a hole on top so I can mount something.


And Drills and Augers are two differant things Arvin, but not by much.

If you look at the wheel shaft, you can see where it actually has two holes. You can change it and it will drill at two different speeds.

Buy a set of Speedbor Bits.

They're the best for this application.

I collect old hand tools (have several thousand) so I have an appreciation of the uses of a brace and bit. One nice thing is that you can apply more torque with one than you can with a cordless drill and they don't need recharged. I also love old hand saws, hand planes, chisels, screwdrivers and measuring tools. They just don't make them like that anymore.

Old tools for wooden boat building are my favorites.

Old tools or Old Fools

not sure on types of bits, but ours look something like this, but with square ends that flare, then taper back down. We used them mostly for mounting gates.

So what is the difference between a drill and an Auger, my punt is gears.

Old tools?

My father in law gave me a brace with a palm pivot similar to the one in the first picture. It's nice to have when the power goes out.
I've got a few older craftsman metal bodied drills from the 50's and 60's. They seem old to me. They're tough as nails though.

The family has a pretty extensive collection of hand tools that date back to the early 20th century, mainly from the workshop of a craftsman whose tools my dad bought when the older guy retired about 25 years old. I notice the older stuff had more quality and heft that their modern equivalents.

I have a couple of old Stanley planes. Both nicely tuned #5 jack planes.
