Ratchet Brace 10 inch Alligator Chuck Jaws
This is a very nice, clean, well cared for 10" ratchet brace with the antique spring-less alligator jaws dating back to the early 1900's era. I am surprised that there is no maker's names, numbers or logos on this brace! It's a nicely made brace with a strong ratchet spring clicker! The bare steel is not rusty, very little wear, a few tiny spots have minor pitting. The handles spin smoothly, although I do notice that the end handle has no oil hole, it can be oil sufficiently from the outside. The same end handle has a form of some sort on both the bushing side and the end outside. The handle is very well attached and turns a auger bit with no problems to report. Measure 13.5" long and 5" measure from center to center of the two hardwood handles.
