Re: What Is This


Looks like it would take an auger bit from an old brace and bit drill... and give that extra bit of leverage that a regular brace hand drill could not, in hardwoods and such.

Re: What Is This


It makes sense save for the projection from the other end. I'm a bit confuzzled.

Re: What Is This


I'm guessing a manual hole hogger as well. I can pucture a cap like is on the end of a brace, being on the end opposite the chuck, to apply pressure as you ratchet the bit through the work. Would be useful drilling large diameter holes by hand.

Re: What Is This


Does the other end have cutting edges? Maybe a pipe reamer?
