The REAL truth is whichever one you are holding in your hand at the moment you decide you need an auger is the best one, provided it still has wings on it, and they have been sharpened.

Depends on which style anyone has bothered to SHARPEN. Like most tools, either work very well when properly maintained. Nothing will work worth a damn if it’s duller than a lecture delivered by Ben Stein.

The best? I have both Jennings and Irwin.

Best is WoodOwl – on the right for a brace, and Star-M on the left for the drill press ..

WoodOwl for the brace have 3 cutting edges ..

<grin> ... you are chatting with someone who regularly works with hard, hard, hardwoods (Jarrah, Sheoak, etc) in Western Australia. It’s basically all we have here.

There is a trick to drilling hardwoods with a brace, especially large bits: first drill a pilot hole for the lead screw. 1/16” is good. This allows the screw to use the pilot hole to pull itself through the wood, rather than having to both cut and pull.

You could do this will all woods.

“SHE OAK” sounds dangerous.
