Millers Falls Hand Drills

  Millers Falls Hand Drill No. 5 - 1909 edition.  Two Cocobolo handles. Very rare example!  

The design of drill shown here was introduced in 1899. The general layout of the frame, main gear, two pinions and handles was carried over until the end of the drill's production around 1960s.


Until 1910 these drills were not marked with a model number. In 1910 Millers Falls decided to include model number, company logo and a name on the metal plate of the crank handle.


However, before this decision was made there was another attempt to mark their drills by stamping model number on the spindle housing. Drills No2 and No5 were marked in this manner.


This drill represents this initiative.


From the rare appearance of this model on today's market, I assume that production run was short and appeared shortly before 1910. In 1910 the company made ultimate decision to mark their drills on the matal plate of the crank handle.
