Millers Falls Hand Drills


 
 

Millers Falls Hand Drill No 2 -1907.  Cocobolo Handles!

 

This is very rare example of a drill dated to 1907.

This is a No. 2 drill equipped with a chuck based on Parsons' patent for the first time. It is a three-jaws, spring-type chuck adjustable from 0 to 3/8 inch.

The drill has no markings on the crank plate and the crank handle is still a small "chef's cap" shape, used on early models. Only after three years - 1910 - the crank plate received a "Star" marking with text. The handle was also replaced with an elongated shape.

The side handle is a detachable, mushroom-shaped, used for the first time on No. 2 drills. It replaced a "egg-shaped" side handle used on previous models.

Millers Falls describes this drill as:

Rare tropical wood; malleable iron, black enameled frame; large gear painted red; other metal parts nickeled.

Hollow End Handle, with screw cap, shaped so tool may be used as a breast drill, and spare bits. Removable side grip handle. Cut Gears with adjustable friction roll to equalize bearing. Pinion of Steel, Ball Thrust Bearing.

 

Price: $270.00
Item #:  207-No2-1907-01

This is nice, early hand drill with Cocobolo main and crank handles, finished with Tru-oil. Smooth operating drill.

Identifying markings are place on the chuck and include chuck's patent date and text. It reads: "Millers Falls Co., Millers Falls, Mass. Pat. Oct. 23, 1900."

There is a small, but very nice repair on the main handle. I show in in the picture below.

 

International buyers will receive separate invoice with additional S&H cost after purchase is complete.
