Push drills

That's a nice little collection you have there.
Fill your heart with compassion, seek the jewel in every soul, share a word of kindness, and remember; the people's what it's about.

At some point back there, you totally crossed the line from "User" to "Collector."

Wow, seeing your's makes me jealous. I have several but (a) not all you have (b) certainly not enough bits to fully populate. My first was the 46Y which I bought new ~ 1973-74. Once I found out a few years ago Stanley has discontinued, I buy pretty much everyone I see if priced within reason. Picked up a pristine Stanley 45 with all bits and the original instructions rolled up inside the cap for $5. Also have a 41Y with all the bits that looks like it was never used. So if it makes you feel any better, you're not the only one with the obsession.


Thanks for sharing.

Nice bunch of drills, Steve. I have an old E.C. Simmons Keen Cutter that belonged to my dad, similar to your Goodell Pratt or MF drills-




I like the rotating cap for access to the bits -




It uses fluted bits that fit in the four jaw chuck. Do you know of a source for them? It seems like a slick idea, but must have been too costly to make as it seems it died out. My drill is also missing the threaded collar for the collet. I've thought about trying to find another drill to scavenge for the part, but it doesn't make much sense to me to spoil another drill to fix this one that isn't in very good shape to start with.

Oh boy, Steve's got the "tool flu" bad . . .

Steve, really nice set of push drills, finding all the different bits is the hard part!

Wow, my dad had one just like #16....I remember it fondly.
I was amazed with the removable red cap, and all the bits inside.

Hmmmm,...I wonder if the reason was the nearly 3 ft of snow we're getting?




Idle hands and all that jazz...
