I recently won a bid on my local online second hand tool site for my first brace. It’s a two jaw brace from Stanley with a ratchet and its in a great condition for the €10,- it cost me.
In the brace and bit video Paul uses a adapter for hex bits, since I haven’t been able to find any square auger bits I was thinking of getting one of those hex adapters to use with modern hex auger bits for drill drivers.
So far I managed to find a cheap set of Hitatchi bits at the local Toolstation and a hex adapter at fine-tools.de.
Has anybody used the square to hex adapter with a auger bit successfully or does it only work with screwdriver bits?
