Millers Falls Hand Drills


 
 

Rare Millers Falls Hand Drill No 2 -1909.  Cocobolo Handles!

 

This is very rare example of a drill dated to 1909-1910.

This is a No. 2 drill equipped with a chuck based on Parsons' patent. 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 in an elongated shape.

However, the spindle housing has a distinct marking: No. 2. This was a first attempt of marking the drill model on a drill by Millers Falls. The drills with this marking are very rare and this rarety suggest that production run with this type of marking was very short and released sometime during 1909.

Only next year - 1910 - the crank plate received a "Star" marking with text. The crank  handle was permanently 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.
