Falls No.1, 3 & 5 eggbeater drills
to Main Page
No.5 eggbeater drill;
Type 16 - The triangular
Millers Falls logo and model number are stamped on either side of the crank
affixing screw, along with some lines, that perhaps were used to as a substitute
for a lock washer, near the crank knob. The protected-spring, 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 major change
is in the frame, which is now made of die-cast alloy. The pinions
have a more usual pressure angle.
