    This early cordless drill allows one to quickly go from drilling to chilling. No cords need to be connecting or battery to charge. Merely attach a drill bit, it accepts modern drill bits, and start drilling. Plus no drill bit key is required. Just go from drillin' to chillin' and hopefully Uber won't sue me.
    Anyway I have wanted an old school hand drill as I thought it could be a easier to use one of these rather than get out an electric cord and hook up my electric drill just to make a little hole. And I was right. Unless one is making a many holes or drilling deep holes it is easier to use a drill made from 1927-1930 like this one. Made by Millers Falls Co and known as the No. 94. Examples made after this were made in a different location.
    The drill is about 11" long. The drill bit in photo #2 is largest this one will accept.
    In the meantime I plan to do more drillin' and chillin'.

      I have my grandfather's. So much easier for small jobs, rather than get out the 'big cannon'! Nifty little thing!

      We call these eggbeater drills, although they are very slow to beat eggs.

      haha Racer just took my comment! haha too funny. Can you imagine what people back then would have thought seeing the type of drills that are out now!
    8. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
      Thank you very much racer4four. I will have to post an eggbeater now.
    9. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
      Thank you very much shareurpassion. I'll bet the early electric drills were a bit large and not cordless.

      In the early days of my cabinetmaking career, I used this type of drill to drill holes for handle and other hardware. They worked great and no battery to go dead.
    12. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
      Thank you very much Shopteacher. I can use this one outside without my 50 foot cord.
