I have spent more time than seems possible on trying to sort this out but… what bits to get for a brace? I know that ideally you find some ancient and still sharp treasures in a garage sale for 2$ but that has not been the case. I ordered a set of augers from Amazon that turned out to be made from ” the finest Chinesium” as Stumpy once said and after a quick look at the burrs and rounded edges and general craptastic condition of the set I used the return button.
I guess my question is what type of shank should i be looking for on the augers? I was looking at some wood owl augers but they all had short hex shanks on them… is there a source for new brace shank augers I am unable to locate??
