AS003 Set of 12 early Ridgway (Sheffield) Jennings augers


This beautiful early set are in superb condition for their age and includes a rare tiny 3/16” bit. Although very tricky to date, 19th century augers are typically slightly longer than the later ones, so we needed to have longer bit rolls made to house them.

Founded in 1878 William Ridgway & Sons were one of Sheffield’s most successful specialist manufacturers of auger bits, through various mergers and takeovers with Marples, C&J Hampton, Bahco, Irwin and ultimately Clico they were also the last.

Jennings pattern bits are made by twisting a flat forging into a spiral, this produces two flutes and opposing lands that support the bit in the hole, making them balanced and accurate.
