Hand Braces and Accessories - Woodworking
Two- and Three-Jaw Chuck Braces
Though not inexpensive (there just aren't as many good brace manufacturers around as there used to be), these are good-quality braces and are exceptional for both round- and hex-shank bits. Manufactured in France, these 10" sweep braces are sturdy, well finished, and operate smoothly with a ballbearing head.

Our two-jaw chuck model is designed for use with bits that have square-taper tangs with short shanks (such as spoon bits, reamers, socket adapters, etc.), but also works with regular auger bits and round shanks from 3/16" to 11/32".

The standard three-jaw chuck model accepts round shanks from 7/64" to 19/32" in diameter and all standard hex-shank bits. It also has the usual square-taper socket for conventional auger bits.

Both braces have composite heads and grips.

Brace Drivers for Screws and Sockets
For driving large screws it is hard to beat a hand brace. Rechargeable drills tire quickly on anything over a #8 screw, but a brace lets you drive a #14 without dampening your brow. Screwdriver bits for braces used to be available, but were always single style. Our hex driver has a 1/4" hex socket with a rare-earth magnet in it to firmly hold any standard 1/4" bit – Phillips, square-drive, posi-drive, etcetera.

We have a second brace driver for use with sockets. It is the fastest way to drive lag bolts or wheel studs and can be used with any 3/8" square-drive socket.

Both brace drivers are nickel-plated steel and about 4" long.

Brace Adapter for Power Tenon Cutters
A tapered square-shank adapter is available to let you use the 5/8" to 1" power tenon cutters with a hand brace, e.g., while cutting in the bush.
