Out of my area of expertise - Drill Bits...

Anyone know where I can find new sets of these relatively inexpensively?

I'm sending a team of folks overseas with www.adoptonevillage.org and they have asked me to source them some tools for a hand brace drill.
No electricity where they are going so I suppose this is the best option for now...

It does not augur well if he doesn't use auger bits, suh.

How fast do you have to have them and _must_ be new?
Auger bits are fairly common on eBay and other venues like estate sales, auctions, etc., for nearly give-away prices if the team can spend a some time looking instead of spending dollars.

I've got my eye on the Irwin set...
Already have a number of the hex taper shank braces donated so I need these tools. :(

Contact Irwin, http://www.irwin.com/tools/browse/drill-bits/woodboring-drill-bits/auger-bits .
Explain what you're up to, bits/sets you need, see if you can get some sort of direct factory discount. Maybe they might even donate to the cause. Can't hurt to ask.

Hex? I thought old brace & bit style bits had a *square* taper.

You can find bits for hand braces (two-jaw chuck) at most antique stores/flea mkts, for very little $$. You may need to sharpen them (a bit of filing on the cutting edge). Look for straight ones.

Consider a few auger bit files to resharpen the bits. http://www.google.com/products/catalog?rls=ig&hl=en&q=auger+bit+file&gbv=2&gs_upl (50l2850l0l6810l1l1l0l0l0l0l220l220l2-1l1l0&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid254379484673517387

Depending on size of holes drilled and materials ever consider a bunch of battery drills and solar PV panels to charge them? Now you have power screw drivers and other power tool capabilities.

All in the works. However, seeing as we only have official representatives on site for three weeks out of the year, there is the danger that things will disappear while we are gone. Many times I can't chance sending over a team of 10-25 people not knowing whether their tools will work.
In the plans for this upcoming July is a permanent storage faciltiy for our items on site.
