Topic tags/keywords: vintage tools hand drill eggbeater drill

Hello fellow woodworkers,

I recently acquired an eggbeater hand drill and would like your help identifying it. I think it could be a 1922 Miller Falls 2B or a 2D (Based on this site I have not found any markings on it thus far. It is missing its side handle, but I believe everything else is there. Its mechanism is buttery smooth and the drill weighs 2lbs. Any help you can offer is very much appreciated.

It’s an early (and desirable) Miller Falls No 2 (or knockoff thereof) the tip-off is the “LRRC wheel” opposite the pinion gear.
(google that phrase for more info)

The 2B did not have removable cap (storage in handle) as I recall.

Wow! What a rapid reply. Thank you Johnny7. So far I see no markings on either the crank handle or the chuck.
