  1. My goodness they are here! I recently purchased two Spofford braces on EBay and man are they beautiful! I first saw these braces being used by chair maker Curtis Buchanan and contacted him and asked him what the heck is that beautiful stylish brace he was using while boring holes in his Windsor seat. He replied back they were the Spofford split chuck brace, and he loved his. I got mine in yesterday and I bored a few holes with mine, and they are absolutely a joy to use. They are very comfortable, light, and they have a direct feel to them as I'm boring. It's hard to explain, but I can actually feel how deep they are boring, I think it's because of the direct transfer of energy from hand to auger, instead of the traditional braces you have some mechanics between the user and the auger, such as a ratchet or large chuck mechanism. One of the major awesome joys of this tool, is the easy release and tighten of augers into the split chuck. I can remove and replace an auger in 4 seconds, not kidding! These are the original quick release bit chucks in my opinion, or at least this split style is. This Spofford is a No. 108, as it has an 8" swing. This "Spofford" is the larger of my two beauts, it's a No. 112, and it's a 12" swing, see how the numbering system works on these? The handles are two piece handles, secured by the original pewter strap bands, they do rotate as you rotate. The amazing split chuck design. This is what really attracted me to this brace style, not too mention they are just beautiful tools, there sleek appearance, and wood treatments. Thanks for sharing my joy!
