    Brace Accessory with 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) and 9 mm hex.
    I have tried them with hex screwdriver bits, hex drill bits, hex auger bits, they hold the lot rock solid. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Very hard to get tapered square shanks now those bit holders may be the way to go.

    haha, all the tool geeks come out of the cracks! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
    I must confess to the same guilty vice! No pun – nor offence – intended!!

    Last night, while watching Paul’s third dovetail caddy video, I was tempted to buy the veritas small router plane – and ended up buying the bloody miniature router instead! http://www.axminster.co.uk/veritas-veritas-miniature-router-plane-prod868111/
    On the damn credit card – you know, the piece of plastic needing cutting up? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Recently also bought a Tyzack router (like that square red one behind P’s bench) which I have sharpened up and used on Lucy – beautiful, large flat platen; and also joined you chaps in the Brace department, both lustful purchases via ebay.

    Happy tool-hunting!

    incidentally, when I bought my brace, it came with a set of centre-bits, dated 1945 – with the Broad Arrow stamp. I have yet to use them in anger, though. I have also found that using a brace as a “power” screw-driver works well, especially in those places where a battery-powered model has difficulty. And, like all hand tool aficionados, I find that one has so much more CONTROL than with a power tool.
