Falls No.1, 3 & 5 eggbeater drills
to Main Page
No.85 eggbeater drill;
Type 15 - The triangular
Millers Falls logo (Millers Falls Mass.) and new style number are now stamped
astride the affixing screw on the crank. The frame retains its steel
center hub for a side handle and the provision for the No.1's back-support
wiper, but the No.85 style does not use either the side handle or the wiper.
Nor is there any shoulder on the narrower main gear.
The main handle
has a newly rounded shape and is made from thickly red lacquered hardwood
rather than the former rosewood. Nevertheless, the Star pattern,
protected-spring, 3-jaw chuck is still used, but with a longer body.
