What size brace do you have, and what size hole do you want to bore? For the most part, I think I would agree with Phil on this. If you have an 8″ brace, it would be difficult to bore a 1 1/2″ hole. If you had a 12″ brace would be easier. The chuck on the brace will also make a difference. Some won’t hold the bit. I usually forstner bits in my drill press, when it is possible. But to answer your question here are some places.
