A friend of mine heard that I was just getting into incorporating hand tools and gave me a couple of gifts. One being a Stanley #2, a egg beater drill and a little leather book that belonged to his grandfather, good little reference guide.
My question is about the drill. Is it a Stanley? Did all the drills have the style of bits shown or could this date it? It's missing the springs and also a washer, I think? I've been looking for the parts but haven't been able to locate them as of yet. Any ideas on what I can use instead? Maybe a pen spring and a steel washer?
Anyway, here's the book and drill pics.

Nice ID Doc. New chuck is probably the best bet, though you can find replacement springs. What washer do you think is missing?

Best I can figure out the bits are called drill point bits. They're fun to use vintage bits but not nearly as fast or effective as modern twist or brad point bits. I really only use an egg beater style drill for holes around 1/8" or smaller because a breast drill has so much more torque that it does a faster job and can drill larger holes of course.
