Adjustable Auger Bit T-Handle 18 inch + Auger
This is a good clean, antique, adjustable bit stock auger bit T-handle. It is 18" long overall, and has enough range capacity to handle most any of the medium to larger auger bits with the tapered square bit stock end. The auger bit can be held in place via an adjustable threaded brackets and nut, and you should be able to use the old auger bits with the nut at the end of the taper also, provided you use a washer with that thread nut. The hardwood handles are both very sturdy, no cracks, nicely turned for good hand-grip, very solid, fairly smooth finish overall. The cast steel parts, bolts and wing nuts, all in very good working order, not rusty, clean. A good vintage tool! Included with the T-Handle is a good usable 1.5" diameter auger bit with a good threaded lead screw and double cutting edge, spiral, and spurs. The auger is sharp, no rust, clean, has some light pitting on the spiral areas in places, straight not damage or bent. A nice larger size T-Handle to give you plenty of leverage.
