these are pretty well used and i think the last owner (or before) enlarged the opening on the one.

Thanks.   I figure they're probably older than I am (and in better shape).   :smiley:

For use with tapered square shanked bits?

Yes.   The wingnuts on the sides are used to open and close up the opening to hold the bit.   I was looking around in the garage today and found a square end screwdriver (long) which could be used, also.   I'll try to get a picture of that and my later stanley holder i "discovered*" at the same time.



*well, from where it was hidden in the garage.   :tongue:
