Here are a couple of my antique tools that are still being used...

Brace with 1/2" and 1" spade bits.  J.B.Ungerson - Barmen Germany is stamped on all three pieces.

Robert Sorby Backsaw - 16tpi.

The case for the Sorby backsaw has been on it on it as long as I can remember...I believe my Dad got it from his grandfather...this is also the source of the Brace and bits. 

 

I (we) believe that the brace and bits could have been brought from Germany when my Great-Great-Grandfather (b.1766-d.1851) immigrated to this country.  The brace and bits work amazingly well...clean holes using a spade bit?  These bits produce good holes with a minimum effort!
