Millers Falls 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.
