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.
