    Christophe,
    Wow that brings back memories. I still have the brace and auger bits I used as a kid in the 1950's. The brace belonged to my dad and other than another hand-cranked hand drill, these were the only way to drill holes. I finally saved enough "Green Stamps" to purchase a Black & Decker 1/4" corded drill and started using it for most of the drilling work but still had used the brace and auger for the big holes. Today we don't think twice about using our rechargeable drills and how much has changed.
    Thanks for sharing, Paul

    I'm hiding my shame - I have and use three of these tools regularly. One always has a hex tool holder in it.

    Never seem to have a cordless charged when you need to screw something in outside

    Regards

    Doc

    I used to use these a lot for putting screws in for wall fixings, etc, using slotted screws with a slot bit. If you got everything right you had a really solid fixing. The only problem was that the power applied to the screw is huge and, if your pilot hole is too tight, you can easily twist off the screw, leaving you with a steel plug in exactly the wrong place!

    If I remember correctly that is called a BRACE AND BIT for all those who like to make holes in doors for dead bolts.......
