FYI – Anyone living in the US or Canada can get these adaptors from Lee Valley.

For the bonus question, here are some links on sharpening auger bits. Buy yourself an auger file from Dieter Schmid at the same time you buy your adaptor and you will be good to go. Sharpening augers is easy. Only sharpen them as much as you need to help prolong their life. It takes about 30 seconds.
