Spoken for. The first PM got them. Sorry!

I’ve got these two pump screwdrivers to give away to a good home. Anyone who uses hand tools or collects them is welcome to them. Like the previous offers I just ask that you return the envelope with the cost of postage that will be in the box. And like before, I hate asking postage but to date I’ll be sending out a bunch of stuff to different people and collectively it would cost a lot. I’ll be shipping them in the smallest ‘if it fits it ships’ usps boxes. These drivers would have to be worth to you whatever that costs… $7-$15?? I’ll know when I go there.
To the people that I’ve okayed to send the previous items last week. I’ll be making the trip to the post office to pick up some of those ‘if it fits it ships’ boxes. They’ll go out some time towards the end of the week.

One driver is a Millers Falls, The other is a Craftsman. They both work like new; very smooth running. Both are at least 10-20 or more yrs. old. forward/reverse and locking settings on each. I’ve not used them and probably never will. Only one driver has a bit. It’s removable and I think you can still find them at tool stores. I won’t separate them. They go together.

First person who Private messages me gets them. Sorry to all the others I’ll have to turn down. I’ll inform the first person via email and post a bold faced notice at the top of this page to all when they are taken.

Ok – I give up. Why are they called Yankee Drivers ?

It is the product brand of North Brothers Manufacturing Company. A New England based tool manufacture. They made high quality stuff and after WW2 were acquired by Stanley.

Also, here is a link to a page with their 1926 catalog. They made killer braces. You can see one on the linked page.

If you still have any of these I would be very interested. I had one that I actually used in the past but it got ruined. I still have a couple of brace and bits that I was able to salvage that belonged to my Granddad and my wife’s father that I use and have often thought about trying to buy one. Just let me know.

Have your say...
