I have a drill bit (Draper tools part number is 41798) and i wanted to use
it in conjunction with a footprint hand drill, however the drill bit will n
ot fit in the drill's chuck (drill bit is a bit big), can anyone tell me if
there is a way to get round this with some kind of converter or adaptor
Didn't realise until checking that this is a wood drill. Is your hand
drill a ratchet brace? These normally take a slightly odd tapered square
If it has a normal three jaw chuck it would be easy enough to grind down
the shank in an approximate hex geometry using an angle grinder.
Do you have no other drill? Unless you are doing serious restoration in
oak, the easy way to drill 12 mm holes in wood is with a spade bit and a
cordless drill. Or a forstner or auger, if you want a bit more accuracy.
