Mephisto 32/16 inch Stubby Auger Bit
This is a nice clean used vintage 32/16" diameter stubby length single spur, double cutting edge brace auger bit in very good working order. It is marked "...histo" or Mephisto the brand name, W. A. Ives makers name..... The lead screw, spur, and cutting edges are all in great shape. No rust or damage, good tapered end to fit you your bit brace. I believe this type of auger drill was made for use on plywood or soft wood like pine. We suggest using it with at least a 12" swing diameter brace with a heavy duty chuck.
