Goodell Pratt #32 Bench Screw DriverGoodell Pratt #32 Bench Screw Driver  I have never seen this before.  I looked it up in a 1915 GP catalog and read about it.  No wonder you do not find many.  Taking the work to the tool and then holding it one handed while operating the drill with the other seems a bit convoluted to me.  Every collection of screwdrivers or old / odd tools needs this.

Good + . . . . . . .$125.00        SOLD!




Reciprocating / Spiral Drive DrillReciprocating / Spiral Drive Drill   I do not see any name on this.  I assume it is a Goodell Pratt or Millers falls made for somebody like Sears or Monkey Wards.  Teens or Twenties by the looks of it.  Different.

Good + . . . . . . .$35.00      SOLD!!




Yankee #50 Reciprocating DrillYankee #50 Reciprocating Drill in Original Box  This is NOS and shows no signs of ever being used.  This model drill is set up to always turn to the right on the up and down of the handle this quickly and efficiently drilling a neat and accurate hole.   Ready to go!

Excellent + . . . . . . .$150.00        SOLD!





Yankee / North Brothers #130A Screw Driver Yankee / North Brothers #130A Screw Driver  The box is a bit beat up, but the screwdriver itself looks to have seen little to no use. The spring is present, and the action flawless.   I am thinking it is war issue from the finishes. 

Excellent . . . . . .$45.00        SOLD!!




Millers Falls #2 Hand DrillMillers Falls #2A Hand Drill  The Millers Falls #2 series of hand drills are very popular and considered by many the finest hand drill made.  This example looks to have seen little use and includes the fluted bits shown.  There is no side handle.   Ready to go!

Fine  . . . . . . .$60.00 SOLD!




Yankee #41 Automatic Push Drill / BoxYankee #41 Automatic Push Drill / Box  The standard and favorite of users.  Works perfect and it has a selection of bits.  The box shows wear. 

Good +  . . . . . . .$35.00     SOLD!






North Brothers / Yankee #1530 Hand DrillNorth Brothers / Yankee #1530 Hand Drill  This is the favorite of users.  The transmission idea from their large breast drills was sized to fit this smaller hand drill making it without a doubt the most versatile of all vintage hand drills.  I especially like the double ratchet position where when you go back and forth the drill keeps going forward.   Much more precise and versatile than one of those battery things with that 3lb weight hanging off the bottom.  Ready to go!

Fine  . . . . . . .$60.00          SOLD!




Stanley #1530 Hand Drill w/ TransmissionStanley #1530 Hand Drill w/ Transmission  This was Stanley's most popular and best designed small hand drill.  They took the transmission idea from their larger breast drills and adapted it to this small drill making for a very versatile little tool.  The double right ratchet is especially handy for use in tight areas.    Ready to go!

Good +  . . . . . . .$45.00       SOLD!

Ruger Pistol Grip Hand DrillRuger Pistol Grip Hand Drill  This hand drill was made by the gun manufacturing outfit Ruger Corp. of Bridgeport CT.  These unusual hand drills date from the 40's - 50's and are pretty hard to find.  I have read that the founder of the company was a tool designer prior to venturing into firearm manufacture.  This is a pretty nice example and will clean to be much nicer. 

Good   . . . . . . .$150.00      SOLD!
