McMaster-Carr Ratchet-Bit Brace Hand Drill
 
https://www.mcmaster.com/#hand-powered-drills/=16q283i
Part number for the arbor/pilot hole drill bit that will fit into the McMaster-Carr ratchet bit brace hand drill and accommodate the Lenox 4.5 inch circular cutting bladeA 3/8” shank will fit in the braces. The part number we use at Nationals is the Lenox Tools 1779805 6L arbor. This arbor is a quick change arbor, It has a 3/8” shank and a ¼” bit that is approximately 3.25”. There are other manufacturers available as well.

Please note that at Nationals, most of our bit braces have been welded so that the shank cannot be removed from the brace, but this is not required.
The Lenox unit can be purchased on Amazon at:

While we use the McMaster-Carr ratcheting bit brace, many teams also use the Robert Larson 10 inch bit brace (also ratcheting). This bit brace confirms that it can take a shank up to ½” (thereby eliminating any concern of the shank not fitting). It is available on Amazon here:

 QuestionAnswer  date
I'm looking to budget for next year. Is the Hach AS950 going to continue to be used and if so do we know for about how long?Thank you for the question.  There will be some changes and the Hach sampler may have a limited life moving forward. 
Stay tuned for updates

Is the collection event for 2020 going to remain the same as it was for 2019?  
Do we have to memorize the programming information or will there be a sheet we can use like in the collections event when programming the autosampler.
