Earlier this year I made a sashay through one of the in-door flea markets in the "Emerald City." Didn't need this one either but I didn't have one like it so...it followed me home I think I paid $1.95 plus tax...kinda crusty...here's the journey through the summer concluding about a month ago. Thanks for looking. Dunlap Model 4217 Push Drill...probably somewhere in the mid to late 50's. Very similar to Millers-falls of that era and uses the same Goodell-Pratt style chuck (four flutes) used by Millers-Falls when they purchased G-P. From the severe oxidation and corrosion on the handle, I suspect it laid in water or wet debris for some time... More on the planes and MF 100 (Buck Rogers) in future threads...The 4217 cleaned and polished pretty well and I was tempted to leave it that way however there was some severe pitting do I decided to paint. Not an exact paint match, but I have several spray bombs of International-Farmall red which seems pretty close. Purists will probably scream...I probably won't when they pry it out of my cold dead hands. Cleaned up pretty well...It had 7-1/2 of the original bits...1/16" usually broken if not missing . Used the Dremel & wire brush to clean surface rust, then coated with Johnson's. Poor man's storage containers I'll divulge in thier own thread. SinceI don't have access to VCI paper anymore, I wrap with wax paper before storing. I thought I had a picture with the cap reinstalled, but can't find it. When I get a round to-it I'll update.
