The auger bit or the drill motor? My drill motor cost me $2, but I did replace the power cord, after I peeled off the 11 patches of duct tape. Gerry :-)} London, Canada

The auger drill. The drill motor should have been smelted at birth.
I'm a bit surprised. The prices for them haven't risen all that much, ~$15-25 apiece. Still, I don't suppose ruining one would endear one to his boss. It didn't for me anyway.:)

Most likely they have Morse tapered drill bits and would rather use them instead of buying new 1/2” shanked bits.
