Model No: 1a
The Millers Falls hand drill number 1a is an early hand drill from the
Millers Falls drilling tools range.
The 1A has the distinctive Millers Falls patterned wheel design with five shaped spokes which look like legs running.
This drill was made with a hollow Rosewood handle with a screw-on lid. The purpose of this hollow handle is to store drill bits inside. There is also a small knob on the wheel which is also made from Rosewood.
The chuck on the Millers Falls 1A is a springless two jaw chuck that was designed to hold the earlier diamond shaped head drill bits.
The Millers Falls 1A was one of the earliest models of hand drills to be sold by Millers Falls.
The overall length of the drill is 10 1/2 inches.
