What Bit Should I Buy?

Purpose manufactured hand auger bits are hard to get hold of, so you can use auger bits designed for a power drill. These work fine and can be sharpened. Meanwhile, you can always pick up hand auger bits on spec if you find them elsewhere.

Would you recommend a leather bit roll?

Re leather auger bit rolls, they are prone to absorbing moisture, which can lead to the bits rusting, so we recommend a cotton canvas roll instead.
