Reading about Millers Falls and
Goodell-Pratt Hand Drills
I have what I think is a 5 1/2 Goodell-Pratt hand drill.
I did some basic cleaning.
I bought it because it looked like a work of art.
Here is the reality:
The main wood handle is great but is stripped of its
threads. The 2 speed knob does not turn. The chuck springs are shot.
After seeing your work and especially the 5 1/2 you restored
I would like you to restore mine. Can you give me a
ball park price?
You responded to a thread I started on SMC a while back.
Since then I caught the bug and now have about 10 drills.
There is not many places around here to hunt for them so I
have been keeping an eye on eBay. I do use them on occasion
and find them, in some cases, better than grabbing a power
or battery operated drill.
