Rare and Unusual Boring Tools


French Brace


Got this as a present for my birthday from my best friend Bas.

I still remember when he bought it when we where both at an restoration symposium almost 10 years ago.  He bought it from a antique tool sale from an organization called Saved Tools. they collect tools which are sent to Africa for local woodworkers.

The drill is 30 centimeters long.

The drill chuck is marked: fabrication Francaise Garantie.  VAL D'OR.

I hope some of you recognize the tool.  If anybody has information on history of the makers, please contact me
