Topic tags/keywords: hand drill

Does anyone know what kind of hand drill this is. I picked it up at an antique shop because it spins really freely, even after I stop spinning it. THere are no markings on it whasoever, solid wheel painted red, and a steel hexagon handle. (side small handle is wood).

Any Ideas?

Dont know the manufacturer, but the first thing I wonder is if it originally had a wood handle that has been replaced?

It was advertised as a Millers Falls…but had no markings to verify that…for $10, as good as it worked, I wasn’t too worried about the maker, just curious. 0

Bumping this up to ask another question, based on this picture…any idea how this handle is attached, or how I could remove it for replacement with wood?

How about making several shallow cuts using a Dremel and a carbide cutting wheel?
