Why does everyone love the clam plate so much? To me itís a waste of money .. just use your drill and put the pistol grip or k drill right on the drill ? Been using my Milwaukee and pistol grip for a few years now no need for a clam conversion kit.

Different strokes for different folks. Some side handles are too flimsy to handle the stress---that is one reason. Better stance when drilling-----my Swede bore can skate on bare ice

Agree.

For me, Clam plate provides much better grip and auger control, reducing the risk of a wrist or arm injury. Convenience and safety.

im with jerkbait, I used to use my drill with just a conversion piece to adapt to auger. It was too dangerous for me, but each to their own.
