Homemade handle with drill chuck adapter for the carbide tools

Sometime this year, I brought a set of 4 carbide tools, but struggling to decide what I should do with the handle. Make a regular handle for each of them or build one with the adapter that fits them all. Then, I saw a picture from a friend who uses drill chuck to hold these tools and it seems working great.

The wood is camphor laurel, very light but strong enough for the job. The length of the handle itself is 400mm. The length of the handle with the carbide tool is 600mm. The drill chuck is standard 10mm chuck with 3/8”, 24 thread fitting. I brought a 2.5” high tension hex head screw, saw the head off and glue it into the handle to hold the chuck.

Here’s my version of the handle. Hope you like it.

Very interesting!
I like the idea of being able to change out the blades so easily and using some old parts makes it an inexpensive project and once made can think of many other uses for the handle.

Izzy Swan moment Yens! This would make it so easy to make your own cutters out of practically any scrap metal. My lathe/router duplicator is getting this for Christmas, thank you so much for sharing!
