Yesterday the wife wanted to go out to the flea market and since it was Mother’s Day, how could I refuse?
We wandered around for about 3 hours looking at antique glass ware and some western roping saddles.
At one place, this feller had a bunch of tools in bins with each bin marked $1 or $2 or $3.
I saw the end of what looked like a Yankee drill in the $1 bin so I started digging and came up withthese treasures.
Yankee 131A (works well)
Dunlap, Made in Germany, drill. No part number. (Works Well)
3 Irwin brace bits. (6, 8 and 12)
1 – 5/8” Chicago Latrobe paddle/auger bit
and one Craftsman brace bit (8/16”) marked 41755 I can’t seem to find any information on this bit. P/N 41755 comes back to Craftsman screw drivers.
After a bit of haggling I got the seller to let me have these fine pieces for the handsome sum of $3.50.
I was a very happy camper.
The picture is after I put the bits though the electrolytic cleaning tub.
The wife? She didn’t buy anything.
