Yankee 1545 Ratchet Drill


Here is a demonstration of an early 1900's North Brothers "Yankee" No. 1545 hand drill.

This thing is an awesome hand drill with two speeds, forward and reverse ratchet, double ratchet, and a spindle lock. This is an amazing bit of early 20th century ingenuity.

It was made long before Stanley acquired North Brothers and is made very well. I use this as my go to drill for driving smaller screws and many drilling applications.
