I inherited from my grandfather a brace for drilling. The top knob is fine but the cylinder handle (I don't know it's name) is missing. I can't seem to find a replacement part for it. Any suggestions?
It's a great tool I use all the time especially for driving screws. I get great control so I don't strip screw heads like I do with the electric drill.
I think this might be a tool where buying new is cheaper than the replacement part.
you could fabricate one out of a piece of pvc pipe for convince, or make one from wood by using a short piece of an old broom handle or dowel and boring a hole thru the middle. What brand is the brace? is the remaining knob wood or plastic? wood would indicate most likely pre WWll
