Do you know of a way to adapt hex shaft auger bits on a 2-jaw brace ?
2 solutions I thought of but could not find anything so far would be to change the chuck only (but where to find a proper chuck, at what price and is the thread even standard ?), or to find a separate chuck mounted on a tapered square shaft that could chuck itself inside the brace’s chuck (a chuck in a chuck…).
Any ideas ? When I try to google for this problem, I seem to find only posts explaining how to grind old square-shafted bits to be used in modern drills. I want to do the opposite.
Bonus question, any one knows of a good resource on how to sharpen those old auger bits ?
