Bit Brace (Backordered)

This exceptional tool is high quality and heavy duty in all aspects.  It is definitely not your average brace. All metal components are thick, strong and heavily plated for corrosion resistance.  The high strength plastic plate runs on ball bearings and the handle action is smooth and comfortable.  The three jaw chuck accepts round, hex and traditional square auger bit shanks. Square auger style shanks fit deep into a recess and the round shank is clamped by the chuck for a strong, slip-free grip. The ratchet mechanism allows the brace to be used in confined spaces with ease making this a most useful tool for drilling, screw driving and removal. The best part is no electricity is required!

10″ sweep, 14″ overall length.  Made in France

Stern Universal Bits

Message from Jennie Alexander Green, Woodworking Author:

Some years ago Stanley discontinued its line of Powerbore bits and I have received numerous and sometimes exasperated inquiries about a replacement…In the interim, I discovered superior tool. It is made in Austria by Stern and sold by Diefenbacher Tools, Item No. 570-3510. It has two nickers and two lips. Both the nickers and the unthreaded lead point are small and require no modification. The bit is far more accurately made than the Powerbore and will hold up well. The metal is harder. The bit’s configuration makes it twice as aggressive as the Powerbore.
