Millers Falls Brace Auger Bit Extension w/Chuck 1890
This is good, old, (1890's era), used, 12" auger bit extension marked "MILLERS FALLS MILLERS FALLS MASS. U.S.A. PAT. FEBY.18.1890" on the chuck threaded sleeve, and "C. LEES" on the side of the main shank and on the tapered square end. Millers Falls improved this tool in later dates by making the end smaller so it could chase behind a smaller auger bit. This one would go in a little over 1.5" hole, or follow a 1.5" bit. This one is in great shape overall, no rust, no damage, good jaws and threads. A good old one!
