Millers Falls No.85 eggbeater drill; fourth example of Type 14.
The triangular Millers Falls logo (Millers Falls Mass.) and model 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.  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.
