very old #5 Miller Falls hand drill. The chuck works great and the gears turn very smooth. The handle is hollow for storing bits. The top of the handle is cracked and has tape on it. The crack does not effect the use. $25 shipped.

What are the dark marks above the Made In USA? They look like tiny holes, but I assume that’s not it.

Great! I’d like to have it. I just joined so I don’t have enough posts to message you apparently, so shoot me an email at and we can work out the details. Thanks!

If something falls through I will take it.

If it falls twice, I’ll be John’s backup :-)

I’ve got 1 or 2 extra MF #5s quite similar to the one above for whoever misses out. I just need to remember to take pictures. PM me if I you’re interested and I forget.

Have your say...
