There is a significant
difference in the material used for construction of this drill in
comparison to later models of No. 2A-1957. I have written an article
MF No. 2A-1957 Transitional model here.
This release went into production in 1957. Millers Falls
catalog describes this drill as:
Single speed hand drill with two pinions. Die cast, iron frame
is enameled black. Drive gear is painted red. Tropical hardwood
main handle with hollow storage for drill bits and cap. "Chef's
cap" side handle.
Ball thrust bearing on spindle. Three-jaw,
spring chuck adjustable from 0 to 3/8 inch. Bright parts
Item #: 257-No2A-1957-TS1
International buyers will receive separate invoice with
S&H cost after purchase is complete.
