Millers Falls Hand Drills

  Millers Falls Hand Drill No 2B -1929.  Stained Hardwood Handles.  

Millers Falls No. 2 hand drills built between 1929 and 1938 were all based on a frame with reinforced spindle housing.

Since 1912, Just like all other models of No. 2 drill, the 1929 release had its equivalent in a "B" version. The "B" version indicates a solid main handle.

During this almost ten-year period, many details of this drill changed. In the second part of 1930s the company began manufacturing parts for this drill that later became a standard on two-pinion drills introduced in 1938.

Some of those parts were wide crank plate and chef’s cap side handle. The wooden handles were also built from different wood species and finished in various ways.

The drill presented here is one of these rare examples. The crank plate is stamped with Millers Falls location. All handles are made in domestic hardwood and originally were finished in red mahogany and lacquered.

The finish I use is different from the original. It is a Red Mahogany Polyurethane.
