This Horace Britton multi tool compendium has a bulbous shaped hardwood handle with a brass segmented ferrule.

This Britton multi tool compendium had 12 bits with a variety of profiles for a range of functions.

The brass ferrule has 12 holes to slot and store the 12 bits neatly and safely inside the handle.

The tool has a steel collar which keeps the drill bits inside safe, as well as securing the chosen drill bit in place.

The outer steel shell is marked 'Horrace E Britton, Stoughton, Mass, USA' and 'Patent Improved Nov 28 1893'.
