Falls No.1, 3 & 5 eggbeater drills
to Main Page
No.5 eggbeater drill;
Type 15 - The triangular
Millers Falls logo and model number are stamped astride the crank-affixing
screw, but the company location is now Greenfield, Massachusetts.
The no-springs, 3-jaw chuck is no longer stamped with the patent date;
and the thickly red lacquered hardwood main handle has a gently rounded
flare. The gear ratio is 61/14; and the more usual pressure angle
gives the teeth a blockier look. The letters "GB" are cast into the
rim of the main gear at about the 2:00 position in the image below.
The side handle is still the old, widely flared shape, but the frame now
has a steel insert in the hub.
