Crocodile Jaws
A companion shot to the one I posted here. The title is a reference to the type of clamp that is used to hold the bits, super strong and very effective. With a screwdriver bit in the jaws, this is one of the most effective means of driving large, heavy-duty woodscrews I have ever used. The amount of torque generating by the 5" throw on that crank handle is truly amazing and can quite easily shear screws if not used with care.

Nice detailed image I like it a lot.
I see your drill has a ratchet as well for the tight to get at places, the drill and bits look like they have given good service over the years

The ultimate cordless screwdriver and no mistake.
Another fantastic, faultless mono Keith.
An inspired composition to best show the business end of the brace and the associated accoutrements, with a vignette to further concentrate the viewers gaze on an icon of the carpenters carryall.
Luv it, excellent work.

Nice picture of the old days, Brace and Bits. as you said a good torque to be had but today the modern electric drill/ torque screwdrivers are excellent and conserve my energy.
Could have done with a little cleaning and oiling over the years, the brace that is not you nor your picture.

A nice still life, I'll try and post a picture of my twin geared drill sometime. That's if I can find it, must tidy the garage sometime.
Anyway well done with the image.

I have seen something like this in a museum Reminds me of my early days as an apprentice, thanks for sharing and making us all feel old

You been in my toolbox again? The kids today wouldn't know what to do with one of these probably; they would be wondering where to plug it in. Nicely edited and the vignette works well.
