So I was doing the neighborhood yard sale with my daughter last weekend, and I picked up a nice Stanley brace for $1. Score. Then the guy asked me if I wanted this for $1, and I said sure. The chances that I will ever use this are slim to none, but I figure if nothing else, it’s a nice wall decoration for the shop.
The chuck says Millers Falls on it, but that’s all I can make out. I haven’t cleaned it up at all yet. I don’t even know what this would be used for. It has the handle out at an angle like a joist drill, but it has a plate for bracing against it on one end. I don’t know if this is a chest brace, or maybe you could put your knee against it for drilling holes down low? I also don’t know if this is an original item, or if it’s a modification of one.
- It appears to be missing a piece, if you look on the bottom side, above the chuck, there is a hole that looks like something should be in there.
So, can anybody figure this one out?
