Type K4 Spindle Nose & Chuck

 
 
This chuck has three springless jaws. The reeding on the shell of this "PAT APPLIED FOR" chuck identifies it as an early Millers Falls design.  The patent was granted later, on September 29, 1896. The present chuck replaces an earlier, unpatented design that was perilously similar to the design shown in the Lanfair patent of August 13, 1895, that was applied by Goodell Brothers to another eggbeater drill.
