All of my braces are 2 jawed. I recently purchased a set of auger bits that I
wish to use ( Sears/Jennings 50-50) which have round shanks with 3 flats in a
120 degree pattern.
What do I need to find to make this combination work?
Lower left in this image is a brace square tang to 3 jaw converter. Not
sure if someone makes a new one or not.
Some of the newer braces had jaws that would allow them to grip a round
shank with two jaws. Forget which one now (Stanley 923 & 2101?), but it
was a patented feature. Choking up on the bit May allow you to avoid the 3
flats, or the right jaws may ignore it.
The other pricey option might be here.

Yeah, i had not looked up the price, was just guessing it was pricey, link
failed me at first. That is a really good price, as it appears he designed
it to fit a small range of sizes, so the offset from the setscrew won't be
a big deal.
