    Help identifying auger bits

    I'm cleaning up my Dad's auger bits and they are a mix of Russell Jennings, Irwin, Nichols but 4 have a "G" on the tang. Anyone know who the manufacturer might be?IMG_20180112_202718013.jpg

    Marked as a 6/16" diameter bit? Might be a "6", instead of a "G"?

    Which would make them 3/8" in diameter.

    IIRC- Greenlee made, or at least sold, auger bits. I'm not sure what their stamped logo is though.

    Anyway, good luck.

    Thought that a first glance but the numbers are on the opposite side.

    IMG_0074 Snell Mfg Co Auger Bit Case.jpgTook a much closer look at the tattered roll. Lined canvas and the Manufacturer says Snell Mfg Co. Fiskdale Mass. No idea if the "G" augers are original to the roll or if they were piecemeal replacements. Snell is the earliest manufacturer of augers in the US beginning in 1841.

    Thanks - I'm leaning toward Greenlee.
