AG040 Full set of 13 Russell Jennings Auger Bits


In 1855 Russell Jennings patented his double twist bit with cutting spurs. Widely regarded as the best bits for use in hardwoods, the fine thread version soon became popular with furniture makers and remains so to this day.

This standard set of 13 bits includes 1/4" to 1” by sixteenths, the vast majority of the bits look to be in unused condition, a few have been sharpened, the 11/16" has some pitting on the flutes but other than that they've still got a full life's work ahead of them.

The double twist of a Jennings bit rests evenly on opposite sides of the hole, so the bit naturally wants to stay straight. The cutting lips release a circle of timber just ahead of the main cutting edge so that the main edges can plane out the waste with ease.

As with all self feeding augers, the best way to get a clean exit hole is to clamp a block of scrap on the exit side so that the surrounding timber is backed up and the lead screw still has something to bite into. 

Supplied in a new British made 18 pocket canvas auger roll.

These augers are pre-owned and not covered by our Lifetime Warranty - please see Terms and Conditions.
