Dunlap Spiral Yankee Style Automatic Push Drill w/6 Bits
This is a nice clean, unique Spiral push drill marked "DUNLAPquot; on bold lettering on the side of the main shaft. It features 8 compartments on an rotary index in the handle that have a total of 6 different sized drills in them (from 3/32"-11/64"). This model push drill has an all metal construction, from the handle, with a metal rotary end cap to the drill point chuck. The metal is all in very good shape, with about 90% of the original nickel plating intact. The rotary end cap is in great shape, it has a spring loaded release and a place for each of the 8 sizes of drill point. There is a number (1-8) size for each drill stamped on the side of the handle next to the storage hole where each of the drill points should be stored, based on smallest to largest size. Of the 6 different sizes of drills included with this push drill, all in very good used to new condition. The push drill is quite nice with no dents, very nicely polished, a few very minor scratches, none effect the smooth spring loaded movement or use of this tool. Basically much like the North Brothers Yankee push drill in function, and is 9.5" long overall. This push drill uses the + shaped shank drill bits, and not the Yankee bits. This style has a likeness to the Goodell-Pratt, or Millers Falls push drill with some of it's features, and we believe it was made by Millers Falls Co.. Works great, with a good spring and good working screw chuck. A Nice clean tool! Millers Falls made several custom push drill models over the years. Some models used the Millers Falls style drill points, while others used the YANKEE brand type. Be sure to look closely at the pictures of the drill points to be sure you purchase the style you want. Both style drill points are not being manufactured in the U.S.A. currently, so most we offer are either new old stock, or sharp and select used stock, as is the case with this offering. You can be sure that the drill points are sharp and ready to use when you get them.
