This is a very nice clean drill attachment with the 1/2" capacity, 3 jaw chuck, holds round shank drills very well! It is marked on the chuck "YANKEE NORTH BROS. MFG. CO. PHILA. PA. U.S.A. PAT. MAR.15.10", and the main shaft is marked "YANKEE NORTH BROS. MFG. NO. 1500" also. This model is designed for drilling metal pipe and other material up to about 3" in diameter, perhaps bigger with a short drill bit. It has a small lever on the side of the main casting that is a spring loaded ratchet controller, so you have a choice of clockwise, counter-clockwise, and free spinning. This system allows the chain that would be wrapped around the stock being drilled, to either press against the stock to assist with drilling pressure, or release the pressure on the drill. A great design for hand drilling metal! All the gears and threads are in very good condition, no rust, very clean! The chuck is one of the few I've seen with most of it's nickel plating still intact, very good mechanical condition. This model has the tapered end shank, for use with a brace or two jaw type breast drill. The tapered section shows some wear in terms of edge dings, but the majority of it's original shape is intact, and works just fine in all two jaw chucks we tried it in, particularly well in YANKEE brand tools. It is about 10" long overall. Very good condition, and hard to find in this nice shape!
