English Hand Tools with Jim Hendricks

  Brace with a Twist  

I truly believe that the Sheffield Brace Pad is one of the most beautiful ways of making holes.




But few are aware that it can also turn into a turnscrew!

This beautifully made bit is cunningly formed in many ways - not only does it have two sizes of flat tip but in either direction. The form is such that it becomes the shank - a perfect fit for the pad (chuck)!

The cunning form - angled from two points to square!

Either way it's both tip and shank!

The bit in the pad.

Amazing torque possible.
