Seven imperial sized metal cutting drill bits with tapered shanks. Three are marked "Dormer" but the others are of a similar quality. I won't use them but can't bear to chuck them out. Can anyone use these? Free if you cover postage. Send a PM.

Those are interesting! I wonder if they were supposed to be used in conjunction with something like a boilermakers ratchet drill rather than a woodworkers brace.

I've found them a couple of times in lots of tooling, never seen what they fit though!

I think that's right. I've already got a few, so I will leave this for someone else. Nice gesture from PP.

Thanks for that Trevanion. Another unusual feature of these bits was a pair of letters stamped on them. I can't remember what as I have posted them already. I haven't seen drill bits marked with the owners initials before and wondered if it meant something else about the bits, Another point of note is I absolutely can't remember where these came from. I think someone just left them in my shed one day....
