We suppose that I want to buy a such tool. I have seen that they mostly have triangular jaws.

With a proper set of auger bits I can get beautifully clean holes (no tear out on either side) coupled with an impressive depth capacity. It's not that often that I need to reach for it, but it's definitely one worth having.
