Restored Millers Falls No. 5 Drill

I restored a drill.

It is a 1910-1912 Millers Falls No. 5 with rosewood handles and a springless chuck.

After the initial cleaning and rust removal, I decided that enough of the original paint was gone that I would repaint the whole thing. I am glad I did.

 

 

For contrast, here is what it looked like when I bought it. It wasn’t bad for a hundred years old.
