This is a very rare tool manufactured in the 1840's-1850's in Sturbridge Mass.! As you may know, there is a vacation attraction in Sturbridge, called Sturbridge village, where you can witness the old tradesmen working with hand tools such as this one, not to mention being part of a village life like it was around the time this tool was made there in that same town. This is the first tool by this maker we have seen is over 10 years of collecting and selling tools! This auger bit is in amazingly good shape with a good lead screw, double spur lips and twist style, and a total of 20" long. The opposite end is a little different, and we are not quite sure what type of handle it was shaped to fit, but we were able to chuck it up in a Millers Falls adjustable auger bit handle. The threaded end in in good shape and has a 1/4-20 threaded end on it. I would suppose this has been modified since original, but there is certainly plenty of stock on the auger to do that a few more time if you wish. Truthfully, we feel it should be in use or in a museum in Sturbridge, but it for sale to any one who appreciates old, rare tools for the 19th century! We doubt you will find another quite like it, or in as nice of condition!
