Ted Sodt's Millers Falls No.5, Type 7A drill

Mug shot of Type 7A No.5 drill
Millers Falls No.5 eggbeater drill; Type 7A - Now with "No.5" stamped on the spindle housing.  Some of the No.1 and No.2 types were similarly stamped.  The No.3's became No.5's before this practice started.  Later No.3's have rod frames.  The only other markings are the company data and patent date on the no-springs, 3-jaw chuck.  The tapered crank has no markings.

Ted Sodt found this drill and graciously gave me permission to use his photographs.

The Type 7B drills, following this one, have no Millers Falls markings at all - just the spindle-housing stamps.
