Rare and Unusual Boring Tools


18th Century Scandinavian Iron and Brass Bit Brace


A stunning, 10 1/2" long brace, lavishly decorated with rope-like knurling and hand-turned beads. Iron with a brass head and wrist handle.

The bit pad is designed to accept early 18th century flat-tanged bits. The thumb screw threads are a bit loose, and it barely holds on.
