Hi All

I would like to get an egg beater hand drill for woodworking

The vintage ones available have a max chuck opening for 3/16 – 1/4 or 3/8. Sometimes really old one can only accept 1/8 bit shank.

I would like to know what tasks, mostly woodworker do with these type of drills and what chuck size do they have or wish they had.

thanks

Martin

Martin my father had 2 of those a small one and a larger one that had gears so by turning at a certain speed the drill would go a lot faster and it took large drills.
My oldest brother must still have it but he is a hard man to get something from him, after he gets something he thinks he is going to take it with him after passing. lol lol
