Millers Falls No.5 eggbeater drill; 
Type 4C - Found published only in a Montgomery & Co. hardware catalog, this model has a wide-rimmed main gear that can easily be grasped with thumb & forefinger for sensitive drilling.  The frame is typical of the earliest No.1 types, but the tapered crank is let into the rim of the main gear for security.  The main handle has been lengthened for the longer, spiral-fluted twist drills.  The chuck is the no-springs, 3-jaw type, still marked with its patent date of September 29, 1896, and the Millers Falls name and location in Millers Falls, Massachusetts.  The diamond knurling places this chuck after the one on the Type 4B No.5 drill.
