Hi Everyone, I'm currently an article about vintage auger bits.
I'm looking for old materials (ads, brochure, catalog).
Does anyone has tips to share?

I have quite a few. If they are sharp they are almost as fast as power drilling.

Not sure about old ones, but don't they make a bit with three spurs. Nothing like it for getting through thick construction lumber.

Sorry, didn't realised my post had error, so let me re-phrase it:

I'm writing an article about IRWIN auger bits, with a focus on early ones: from 1885 to 1920's.
The article is a work in progress and is available online, but as i'm a new user, i cannot have URLs in my post :crying:

This article is for collectors who want to identified how old are their Irwin auger bits, there's a section about box/cases too.

I'm looking for people who would have old catalogues and are willing to share information.

We can allow it if it's not for profit and doesn't require registering on the site. Write out the link but leave off the www and space the .com, org, or net a few spaces away and our security system should let it through. I can go there and copy the url and then edit your post to add a working link.
