3D model description

Update Rev A - Tightened the fit of the hex bit. It should hold it much better. The opening is slightly larger, and then it tapers to an exact fit. Older files are still included for reference.

This is a mashup of two clever designs.
Hand beater handle, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4290265
and
Handle for 1/4 inch hex bits,https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4308369

The hand beater handle came out first. I downloaded the design right away. Not because I needed a replacement handle for my egg beater, but it was just so well designed for functionality and for printing. I just needed to find something else to attach to the handle.

Then I saw this handle for hex bits. It was a good match up.

I tried a couple of designs based on these two parts, but I’ve only printed one.

After printing the design, I went to Lowes and bought this inexpensive set of hex drill bits. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-21-Piece-Titanium-Coated-HSS-Twist-Drill-Bit-Set/1002680600 It is a good combination.

It works ok. The hex bit holder part is loose. It needs to be shrunk down to more tightly hold the bit.

Using it as a drill puts a lot of side load as you turn the handle. It helps when the bit goes into the wood. This anchors that end from moving.

Overall it is compact and needs no battery or outlet. The design has some areas for improvement. Fun, but for serious work get a cordless drill.
