The William Marples hand drill M423 is a blue framed, two pinion drill made in a similar design to the Stanley 803 hand drill with the main difference being it is finished in a blue finish and it is fitted with a Jacobs chuck.

This hand drill is fitted with hardwood handles including an optional side handle.

The Marples M423 hand drill's face plates has the markings 'Marples M423'. Some of these M423 hand drills also had a trade label on the drill face plate with the wording 'unbreakable frame, 423, ball thrust bearing'.

Handle says '423 Made In England'.

The drill has a three jaw grip inside a chuck which says '8mm Jacobs 5/16" ' and the top of the chuck says 'Made In England, UK and Foreign Patents'.
