Greenlee Yankee Push Drill Automatic w/ 7 Bits No. 483
This is a very rare automatic push drill model, marked "NO. 483 GREENLEE ROCKFORD IL. U.S.A." on the nickel plated sleeve of the main body, and a similar marking on the translucent green molded plastic handle. This is a spring loaded drill, that spins the drill chuck in a clockwise motion when you push the handle. Greenlee made the spring loaded chuck on this drill to except the well known "YANKEE" drill bits with the notch and flat on the shank. Included is a group of 7 drill bits (points) to fit in the chuck (from 5/64" to 11/64" all different sizes), and they are stored in the handle. The handle is hollow with 8 spaces to put points and one space to lock the cylinder in place to keep the points from falling out. The handle is solid and well attached, with some scratch and wear noted, but still very nice looking. Everything works as it should, very good mechanical condition. Appearance is about 85% like new with most of the wear on the handle and some minor wear on the nickel plating too. It is 9.5" long. Overall a very nice, clean drill, and a very strong return spring! A rare one!
