Millers Falls Hand Drills


 
 

Millers Falls Hand Drill No 2 -1921.  Unusual Cocobolo Handle!

 

This is basically a 1921 frame model with side and crank handle in domestic hardwood, stained. I finish it with Poly. The chuck is a Ryther's chuck.

This version was produced from 1922, according to Randy Roeder: http://oldtoolheaven.com/hand_drills/drill2.htm.

The interesting part of this drill is the unusual main handle. It is, I suspect, a cocobolo, but very light in color. Very light. Another unusual characteristic is the lack of marking on the cranking plate. I have several drills of a different vintage with this characteristic . Overall, a unique drill in very nice condition.

Millers Falls catalog 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. Reinforced spindle housing.

Chuck of Star pattern with 3 jaws opening with springs, which are Protected From Injury and Will Not Get Out of Order, and Closing Evenly on, and Centering Accurately, round shanks from 0 to 3/8 inch in diameter.
