  1. Cleaned up a Millers Falls No. 3 Hand Drill today

    This thing was covered in rust and was all gunked up. Really difficult to turn. I should’ve taken a before pic, but forgot. Sorry!

    I’m out of paint stripper. Need to pick some up. Next step is...

    Yes! Thanks. I actually edited my post before seeing yours as sort of a self reminder.

    EDIT: Heh! A 2 1/4" iron is harder to find than I thought! On eBay they're going for $45 - $85! And the Hock...

    This is interesting. Thanks for sharing. I was just looking back at the photos I took of the 5 1/2 earlier in this thread and noticed there's a crack in the iron! Not sure how I missed that. No...

    Thank you. This is very helpful I see the difference between the Holdall and Lion chucks. I agree with you that mine is made by Millers Falls and has the Lion chuck with ball bearings. As I continue...

    In the photo of the three chucks you shared, mine most closely resembles the Sampson (top left) since the arrow notches on mine are centered in the sides of the square, whereas on the Lion (top...

    Are you referring to the Diamond Edge branded #4 plane with the hard rubber / gutta percha tote? Or the completely unbranded #5 1/2 plane with Diamond Edge blade? I assume the latter since you...

    Nice stash!



    Thanks for the link. I ended up navigating to that page after learning the Craftsman I have bears similarities to the MF 772. That site is a gold mine.

    Now that I know it's a Craftsman, I did some internet snooping and this is the best info I've found. Seems it is likely made by Miller Falls and has a "Holdall" model chuck. It's apparently similar...

    Aha! Mystery solved. I started cleaning her up and found the stamping. It's a Craftsman.

    I think it says "CRAFSTMAN - 10 MADE IN USA"

    I've looked all over this thing for stamping, but can't find anything. Probably covered by rust for now. Here are some more pics:

    Regarding the try squares, according to this link, it seems they are Stanley No. 2 Winterbottom’s Patent Combined Try & Miter Squares.

    Thank you for this information. I looked closely at the brace for a maker's mark, but wasn't able to see anything. Maybe once I clean her up it will reveal something legible.

    The Stanley Try Planes both are marked with Patent Date 2-8-98
