This is a very rare, clean spiral ratchet screwdriver, it is marked "MILLERS FALLS CO. MADE IN U.S.A. NO. 229" on the nickel plated selector switch. It is also marked "MILLERS FALLS" on the hardwood handle. It measures 11.5" long overall fully extended without a bit in the chuck, has a rosewood stained hardwood handle. The wood handle is solid with about 85% of it's original finish intact, we note a number of tiny to small dings and scratches, light bench wear, as shown in the pictures. The steel screwdriver head and shaft is in very good useable condition with very little wear. Nickel plating is 45% intact, most of the nickel is worn off the shaft that is between the handle and the selector. The selector on this one moves smoothly and holds position very well, three position, left, right, lock. The spiral function is spring loaded on this one, and can not be locked in the compressed position. The bit is removeable, and has a 7/32" or .218" diameter shank, and will except that size Yankee Phillips adapter bits that we also offer for sale (under Yankee with the search feature ref. Number is T5635A). A very nice medium sized spiral ratcheting screwdriver! There is two slot bits included with this screwdriver, one 3/16" and one 1/4" wide bit at the tip, both in great shape, plus three different sized fluted wood drill bits. A very nice antique ratchet spiral screwdriver from the 1920's-40's era!
