brace bits in size 4 through 16 - no markings found on box and only sizes on the bits.

Hey P.,

I don’t know who made them, but that’s a very nice set of bits!  They look like they’re in great shape.  Where did you find them?

They look like the Irwin pattern bits, if that helps.

Another set from the local Restore.   I'm guessing someone passed on and the spouse/kids didn't want it.   I know our local store just got a whole shop of stuff from a family where she did a yard sale and then gave a truckload of stuff to the store. :sad:

Did you look on the shaft between the shank and twist sections for the trademark/name?  I have bought and sold probably 15,0000 bits over the years, and it is very rare to have unmarked nice looking bits.

THey're currently hiding in the frozen wasteland of my garage.   I'll have to dig them out and have a look.   Thanks! :tongue:
