Old Tools, restoring/reworking #4: Millers Falls No. 105 Single-speed hand drill

I think this drill was made in 1914 most of the paint/jappaning was missing from the frame but the main gear looked good.

Here it is completely disassembled

Painted the frame, original finish on the main gear, cleaned, polished, lubricated and reassembled.

Don ...

Nice work Tim

Madts ...

I have one very similar, bought 30 years ago at a swap-meet. Took me 10 years to find out that the top handle unscrews to reveal a drill bit storage. Mine could use some TLC. Thanks for the inspiration.
Does yous have this feature?

Very nice old crank! Love it!
