"YANKEE" Bit Braces - North Bros. & Stanley


 
 

"The "Yankee" Brace is unlike any other brace.  Its position in tooldom is like that of a fine car in the auto industry.  Its appeal is to those who take pride in ownership of finer things... appreciate precision and finish in toolmaking... understand the long-run economy of paying a little more for quality and efficiency."

North Bros. Mfg. Co. - 1931

In 1946 Stanley Works purchased the North Bros business. For several years Yankee bit braces were manufactured in Philadelphia, in former North Bros. facilities. During that time the braces were marked as produced by North Bros., a division of Stanley Works. No changes were made to the design or appearance of the braces.

In later years small changes to the appearance of the braces were introduced by Stanley. The hard rubber handle material was abandoned and new, hard plastic (ebonite?) was used.

International buyers will receive separate invoice with S&H cost after purchase is complete.
