Falls No.1, 3 & 5 eggbeater drills
to Main Page
No.5 eggbeater drill; second example of Type 15.
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
has a new base; and the thickly red lacquered hardwood main handle has
a gently rounded flare. The gear ratio has been changed to 61/14 along
with a more usual pressure angle, resulting in thinner, less triangular
teeth. The letters "GB" are cast into the rim of the main gear at
about the 2:00 position in the image below. The central hub has a
steel insert for the new (to this Type of the No.5) small side handle.
