  1. One of last year's find at the Covered Bridge Festival yielded one of my prized push drills now that I have it operational. A Millers-Falls, Model 100 (aka Buck Rogers). Found it in a pile of stuff but no price. I finally found the vendor and asked how much for this...He replied "I don't even know what that is...how about $3.75?" I couldn't get my money clip out fast enough...I didn't know how many bits were trapped inside, but it had an original tube which contained several I could tell. Mom's illness came shortly thereafter, then all the trips & time to the hospital, the nursing home, then eventually her passing, many things were placed on the back burner for some time. A few weeks ago, I decided it was time to figure this thing out so here's the journey. Thanks for looking... As purchased...you can see the Red Tenite has the typical "mold" from age, and exposure. It really stinks too. Bits in the tube turned out to be straight shank probably for an egg-beater style. Not for this drill or any of the Stanley style either. After some internet searches, I finally found some information on how to disassemble the 100. Soaking with WD-40 still would not free up the Red handle portion to rotate easily to remove the bits in the handle. The multiple layers of blue masking tape provided a gripping area where I could use gripping pliers without damaging the aluminum. I had tried strap wrenches with no success. Even at this stage, I still could not get the handle to rotate easily or to further clean. NOTE: The wood plunger. This one appeared to be turned from maple. You can also see the "gang green" transferred from the brass. I had pre-cleaned the Tenite handle first using a nylon scraper, then green Scotch-Brite. Cleaned the plunger with Acetone, Scotch-Brite, then 3 or 4 coats of Johnson's Wax. I added another layer of painters tape to the plunger barrel to remove it from the spiral drive. Handle was cleaned with Simple Green & water mix then buffed on the lose sewn buffing wheel and Blue Compound specific for plastic...yep it still stinks. The adapter on the right by the plunger barrel incurred some damage to the internal spirals as well as the shoulder during removal. I had to use an Easy-Out.; spent a lot of time with jewelers files to repair, but getting it out let me finally get the handle free. I chose not to to remove the brass tube from the end cap fearing I would collapse it trying to get a firm grip. A lot of cleaning and polishing with the Dremel, hand polishing with 240-400 grill wet/dry and also final buffing with different compounds at the buffer. I made a flap sander from a 1/4" bolt shank by cutting a slot in the shaft to wrap sand paper arse a way to flap and enlarge the ID of the handle some. I guess the Tenite either shrinks (it certainly stinks) over time or maybe the WD-40 had an adverse effect on it. Anyway, after ever thing was cleaned and polished, it still would not rotate freely on the brass sleeve without flapping. Sub-assembled with white grease to lube all the internal moving parts; The reveal after tape removed and everything cleaned and polished. Oh yeah, it was worth the patience & work as all 8 original bits with minimal surface rust were in the handle turret I don't think this had been used much and some bits not at all. All bits were buffed with the Dremel and scrubbed with Johnson's and a toothbrush. The non-matching bits will get a new assignment to one of my egg-beater drills. Ready for it's new luxury dwelling. Thanks for looking.
  2. ...from this years' Covered Bridge Festival...I was rummaging through a box of stuff sitting on a table when out of the shadows of one corner of the tent a voice called out "everything in that box is one dollar." Not much in tools in that box or the tent for that matter but I spied this in the dollar box... Craftsman #4216 push drill with (3) bits. Has the same Millers-Falls style chuck. While there is no actual number on this drill, inter-web searches list it as a #4216. I haven't nailed down if this was made for Sears by Dunlap or Millers-Falls. both made push drills for Sears-Craftsman. while the handle is not red tenite, it looks and SMELLS identical to the M-F red tenite handle; has the same sort of "oxidation" too. Spent time with a plastic scraper on the handle removing the build-up, then green Scotch-Brite on both the aluminum and the handle then off to the buffer with appropriate compounds. I chose not to dis-assemble at this time since I had all the others in various states of re-conditioning, Polished up pretty nice. I suspect the plunger spring may have a couple of broken coils since the lower shaft will drop into the barrel when inverted. However it seems to function OK w/o any noise, just weak. Someday, I'll disassemble and take a look. Dremel brush to the bits then brush-on Johnson's Wax. It does bear some resemblance to the "Buck Rogers" and has similar features. When the latch is held back, the handle rotates to dispense a bit at one of eight locations. You can feel a slight detent. anyways, not bad for a buck and of course, I didn't have one like this either...Thanks for looking. BTW, push drill summer hunt/ refurb season is pretty much over. I have several in the queue from past picks and who knows what the winter hunt season may yield.
  3. 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.
  4. Ok, so this year at the Covered Bridge Festival yielded a new vendor. Somehow he convinced me to abandon my self-imposed ban not to exceed $5 for a push drill purchase unless it was a pristine, mint, all bits model...Well this one met most, OK some, alright, resembled that criteria...I was unsupervised while there and was debating to purchase a $5 Lemon Shake-up...cost avoidance on the Shake-up provided cash flow for this... A Craftsman (no model number nor has my inter-web searches yield a model number for this one) Push drill with the (3) bits shown by the handle. It uses Stanley-Yankee style bits versus the Goodell-Pratt/Miller Falls style. I also bought a near full set of Stanley bits, although th 1/16" is slightly bent. Total as shown was $13...I offered $10 and he said "OK"....so technically the drill did not exceed my personal limit of $5...I have yet to establish a max limit on bits. Very similar to the Millers-Falls #100 "Buck Rogers"; In fact the same person designed both. Disassembly was much easier and more logical than the M-F. The wooden plunger in this one is turned from white oak versus the maple in the M-F 100. Again cleaned it with acetone, Scotch-Brite and 4 coats of Johnson's. Dremel work on the rest. The turret cap is not Tenite on this one but still had some of that odor. It was faded from UV or ??? exposure. Some time at the buffer with various compounds brought it back to life. I chose not to attempt to remove the body from the see-through magazine. It appears was pressed to the aluminum body during initial assembly. The body is some type of aluminum alloy and has a good deal of heft to it. Much heavier than any of my other push drills. I decided to keep the natural patina on the handle too. there was some rust staining in the magazine windows,; I used some Simple Green and automotive window cleaner (non-ammonia) with a nylon brush and was able to remove most. White grease on all the moving parts and back together. As mentioned, very similar to the Millers-Falls #100. Actually, I like the feel and bit storage delivery design better on the Craftsman. Both are keepers... Tuned up and ready for it's new home too. Modified my storage container design some. Thanks for looking.
