Yankee 1530 Ratchet Hand Drill
Yankee 1530 drill Mfg'd by North Bros Phila. Pa. This little 10 1/2" drill is littered with patent dates, I think 8 in total ranging from Nov 2 1897 for the ratcheting mechanism through April 15 1913 for bit storage in the handle of this very drill. (click on patent dates for more info). In very good condition. 3 jaw chuck accomodates up to 1/4" bit. All operations of the ratchet mechanism function smoothly and as they should.
