Peck, Stow, & Wilcox Carpenters Ratchet Brace No. 2010
This is a very nice, clean, late 1800's patented ratchet hand brace, and it has a 10" swing. This model features the flip latch adjuster for the rachet system directional adjustment. It is also marked "P.S.&W. CO.NO. 2010 MADE IN U.S.A." basically a abbreviated name used by (PECK, STOW, & WILCOX). This model has the flip lever ratchet control system. The ratchet system and chuck is in very good condition with nice heavy duty, non-spring loaded jaw inserts, the knurled part of the chuck or the chuck sleeve is steel with some scratches and minor little wear, but chuck works fine, very good working ratchet system as well. The head turns smoothly, capped with a very nice rosewood handle, and the crank handle matches it very well in condition and appearence. The condition is good+ overall, with no rust and very little wear overall. Both handles are very nice condition. In really good working condition overall. A quality made brace, still in great shape, nice looking too! This brace measures 13.38" long overall.
