Excellent QualityI understand, but can't confirm, that this is the last bit-brace made in continental Europe. It's really fine work; I've read (but again cannot confirm) that this is a France Manufacture. While the handles are some form of plastic, it's a quite tough, attractive material, perhaps Lexan. The machining and finish on the arms, chuck and jaws could not be better. Costly, it is, but worth it, if you like quality hand tools. Now - if only there were quality auger bits out there . . .
French BraceWell now, this is a fine tool. Well balanced and easy to use. Very happy with the purchase.
FantasticJust try to find a quality brace at your local Lowe's or Home Depot. You won't find one. I purchased one several years ago from the local ACE hardware store, but it wasn't anything like the brace I purchased from Garrett Wade. The ACE brace could not hold up under 'ranch' work.
