Topic tags/keywords: question drill-driver

I am trying to sell this little chuck on Ebay.

No markings on it, but it is at least a3/8” capacity chuck. Someone has abused the shank, maybe by running it it another drill? Looks like just hand-tighten to hold a bit. Three jaw chuck, no less. Looking for a better description for this little “gem”.

Almost a “Whatizit”? Dad USED to have an old breast drill, now long gone. Maybe this is all that is left?

Well it seems to be a 1/2’ chuck, used by Blacksmiths. Also used in breastdrills. No name because the name would have been on the drill itself. Might be a way for a smaller drill to use larger shanked drill bits?

+1 on the hand drill or breast drill part.
