This is a Millers Falls No. 38 Hand Drill. It is in excellent condition, most of the enamel remains without rust or scratches, few marks and blemishes are present. Minor damage to the primary stationary handle can be seen in photo eight. The primary stationary handle and the cranking handle are in incredible condition, with an uninterrupted thick coat of varnish on each. The secondary stationary handle is in good condition, with no major damage, although the varnish has become less glossy over the many years that it has been used. There is a small amount of resistance when the drill is being cranked, but overall, it is in great functioning condition. The top of the primary stationary handle can be unscrewed to reveal a vessel which can store the drill bits to be used with this drill.
The body of the drill features a jet black glossy enamel coat which is in fair condition (see photo two). The main gear is coated in a very bright red enamel coating with yellow and black branding. The bright areas that are not coated in enamel are coated in nickel, providing a hazy shine. The chuck feature three jaws, and is adjustable to provide a 0 to 3/8 inch opening. This is a small opening, and therefor it will obviously not be compatible with large drill bits.
