If your magnets are 3/8” then a 3/8” bit should work and it should have a 3/8” shank that should fit your 3/8” chuck.
That a lot of “should of”s but I think you get the point. Are you sure the bits are 1/2” shank? I’ve never seen that on brad point bits.
For a box, 3/8”x1/4” mags may be a bit big. It will take a good tug to pop it open. 1/4” would work fine.
