Lakeside Brace Auger Expansive Bit up to 1.75 inch Dia.
This is a nice smaller size expansive brace auger bit, marked "LAKESIDE" on the shank, (Lakeside is the old trade name that Montgomery Wards used on their retail tools. Most, if not all MW tools were made in the U.S.A.) and comes with the 3/4 - 1.75" range adjustable inserts. It's length is 7.25" long overall and has a medium duty .34" shank diameter. As you can see in the pictures, the graduated scale on the insert allow you to pre-set the size diameter that you want. As you can see in the photo, there is some minor pitting noted on the cutter, however it doesn't seem to effect use. No rust or damage, sharp and ready to use.
