Stanley Yankee No. 41 Push Drill w/Drill Adapter
This is a good used Yankee push drill with a new straight shank, standard drill bit adapter. Yes, this means that you can use any straight shank drill bit from 1/32" to 1/8" diameter straight shanks, with this Stanley No. 41Y push drill! We supply a total of 6 different drill bits that not only fit into the keyless chuck on the push drill, but also fit into the handle storage area too! The supplied spiral type drill sizes will be 3/64", 1/16", 5/64", 3/32", 7/64, & 1/8" diameters, included in the price of the drill. The push drill is marked "YANKEE NO. 41 NORTH BROS. MFG. CO. DIV. OF STANLEY TOOLS MADE IN U.S.A.". It is in very good used condition with very little wear,no damage, about 98% of the original nickel plating intact. This push drill is 10" long overall with no drill bit in the chuck, and the supplied bright finish, twist drill bits are 1-3/4 to 2" long overall, and the bits can be chucked up short if you wish, so that only the fluted part of the drill is showing. This adds strength to the drill bits when drilling, particularly with the smallest diameter bits. There is a cross pin about 1/2" behind the chuck that keeps the drills from falling into the shaft section of the push drill. The chuck is a 3 jaw, keyless screw chuck, and holds the drill bits very tightly in place, but is easy to tighten and loosen. This push drill is in very good condition, with a few minor scratches and minimal wear, about 90% nickel plating intact, bright finish! The main advantage to these drills with the new straight shank drill adapter will allow you to use standard drill set bits in the small sizes. Since the old style Yankee bits are no longer being manufactured, they are hard to find new, and their cost has been on the increase, at about $4-$7 each for each new Yankee bits, where standard straight shank bits are about $2 per bit, and you can buy them at most any hardware or tool store. We have tested these drills ourselves, and find that the spiral drill cut very well in wood, plastic, and plastic (or drywall). You can use them effectively on sheet metal if a center punch is provided in the metal to keep the drill bit from slipping out of place while starting the drill hole. The quality of these drill bits surpasses the old style Yankee bits, and we believe these bits will far out last any of the Yankee bits from the past, based on our tests of this new chuck holding system. We have adapters for most Yankee push drills for sale at this site, and also various screwdriver adapters too! We have been selling Yankee tooling for several years now, so please feel free to ask us, if you can't find what you need. We always try to help!
