Millers Falls No. 100 Yankee Push Drill w/8 bits
This is hard to find late mid-1900's era, spiral type push drill with a full set of new 8 drill points, that store in the bullet shaped handle! It has the special 8 compartment storage handle that is made of metal and the red is heavy plastic, and in very nice condition. It is marked "MILLERS FALLS CO. MILLERS FALLS MASS. U.S.A. NO. 100". Each size of different drill points is also marked on the top polish metal ring near the end of the handle, to help keep the drill points in there corresponding compartment. The red part can be released and rotates to allow the loading or removing or the drill points through one hole. This works fine. The metal is all nicely nickel plated and polished, very nice looking bullet like shape. The chuck is different than the North Brothers Yankee chucks, so the drill points have a + shape at the end instead of a notch and flat like the Yankee's. In this case, I am including a new old stock set of drill points with this drill, the points where sold by Sears and Roebuck, and are the fluted type, in 8 different sizes from 1/16" to 11/64". The chuck and spiral are both in very good condition, and work smoothly. Overall this push drill and points are in very good to new condition, there is very little very minor wear to report, almost as if it was never used. A very nice tool overall.
