Category: Old Drills
Manufacturer: Horace E Britton
Tool Type: Mult Tool / Compendium
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'.
The handle was marked 'Pat'd Nov 28 1893'.
The Horace Britton multi tool is very similar in design to the Stanley Rule & Level multi tool
