Neat idea Krv,

Good idea Bob, nicely shown.
Very useful with the 3 jaw drill chuck, makes it very versatile Smiley-signs107 Smile
I agree. Very useful tool.

Admit it Bob. You just wanted to sneak a little woodworking in on us, didn't you? LOL. Big Grin

I agree, those are handy tools to have. I use the countersink / deburring cutter in mine quite often as well. Smiley-eatdrink004


Hi Bob Big Grin

When you showed me those hand chuck when i visited your shop ,,thought i must make a couple ,,,,,,, came home dug out two chucks from the back of a draw ,1/2 and 3/8 ,, found a couple of UNF bolt that screwed in the backs ,,,,then found i had no handles Slaphead ,,,,,,,,, so plan B ,,, i am going to use hex bar Popcorn

thanks all rob thats a good one to it will stop it from roling off the work bench its the most vertile tool i have made its grat for holding smal parts for polishing


Grabbed 20 minutes in the shop tonight Big Grin

I used a bit 1' 1/4" SS hex for the handle ,, using steel for the handle means i can mount it in the bench vice if needs be ,,,,,,,,,,, may make one for the 3/8 chuck tomorrow Popcorn

Cheers for sharing your idea Bob Smiley-signs107
