usefull handle information

I use the mid size handle made by kelton and realy like it. It is made to use 5/8" and 1/2" tools with. I also just got the small hollowing rig by Kelton McNaughton. I was under the impression by the catalog I looked at that this rig would handle 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" tools but found it will not handle 3/4". This rig is not even listed on the McNaught on web site, so I wrote the rep and was told they do still make it and if I wanted to use 3/4" "You can bore out one end with a 3/4" drill bit to accept 3/4" tools."

Not what I wanted to hear! I found a better solution. The two adapters sold to fit the Hosaluk handles from oneway work fine! I can now use both 3/8" and 3/4" in my hollowing rig or with the Kelton handle I all ready own.

Much cheaper and better than drilling out a tool and buying a new handle.
