    This tool was bought in auction. It was in a carpenter's tool chest.
    It's plainly for drilling small holes.
    The handles are wood and he drill metal.
    It measures 18.5" long.
    I need a name and specific use and age of this item.
    Thanks

      Known as an archimedian drill which could be used for light work or where a brace might not fit. Possibly 19th century or early 20th.

      Dear Irishcollector, many thanks, I didn't expect an answer this quickly!
      I stumbled upon this site and I'm glad I did.
      Thanks Again
