Thanks for the reply

I don’t know if all the info on http://oldtoolheaven.com/hand_drills/drill5.htm is accurate. The 480 is described as having a Rotatable cap on end handle provides access to eight drill points. This drill does not have a cap on the handle. Also http://www.georgesbasement.com/gearwprs/oldno104.htm shows a 480, it has the screw on handle, and a single gear.

Thanks for looking

I don’t think it’s the 480 either. From what I can find, all of the 480s were single pinion. It definitely has the look of a Millers Falls drill but I’ve never seen one with the solid frame like that. It’s possible that it started with a wooden handle and someone turned and fitted a metal one to it. Even ignoring the handle though, I can’t identify that frame. Are there any markings on the crank handle, the chuck or the drive gear?

Clean up the chuck and see if it has any markings.
