2, 3, 4 jaw chucks, 345678 sweep, whimble, engineers, electricians, various attachments…..

Sets a fella’s head a spinning. Other folks might find it boring…

Bits too….Single twist/ PR pattern, fine thread feed, bates, I think there’s eight different types of the common single twist irwin bits

There’s some interesting stuff within that topic….

I agree Eric it is a big topic. Add handled Augers to the list too. I’ve been watching the first year of the Woodwright’s shop. He seems to do more with the augers than with braces or drills.
