North Brothers Yankee Brace Bit Extension Shaft 24 inch
This is a nice, clean 24" long extension brace bit shaft marked "YANKEE NO. 2150 NORTH BROS. MFG. CO. PHILA. PA. U.S.A. PAT. NO. 1661935, 1805330" on the main shaft. It's in good, clean condition, nickel plated type finish, about 85% still intact, some minor pitting on the sleeve section, good threads, chuck works really well. The box states that is will follow a 11/16" bit or larger. The one end has the taper for your brace, while the other has the adjustable chuck to hold you bit, threads are good and smooth, a very hard to find tool in this condition! The brace tapered end has some wear noted, but holds fine in a brace. Also included is the original box with a good label. The top and bottom of the box are very solid, and the both are missing some of the green paper covering, otherwise in good condition. A nice collectible tool!
