    Sure John I have a few........

    The braces look the same but one is the 1010 and the other is the ARTISAN and I think there are a few different chucks also.

    As far as the straight drills the one on the right is made of nickel I think. There's not a spot of rust or tarnish on it. I've had a few metal guys look at it and they seam to think nickel too. :?:

    But the Yankee was by far the hardest to find.....I sure would like to get a hold of a Ruger drill bit for these. The wife and I go to a lot of antique malls and are always on the look out but no luck :cry:

    Hey Dave I just noticed that both of your ""pistol grip"" drills are the same type it appears......do they have a square or round pin retaining the gears????? I think one of them doesn't have the safety dimple and the other does......both of yours appear to have the dimple......good to know as I may have an ""extra"" :D :D :D see ya RR.

    Dave - Man, this is more like it, I go crazy for the old tools. That ARTIZAN is very, very rare, hold onto it because there is some interesting data coming out about them. The dimples on the Precision Drill (pistol grip) actually serve as the magazine guide on the later to come Standard Pistol. You have a great collection of tools thanks for sharing them.

    Thanks guys, I really do enjoy the the tools. I'm thinking of restoring one of the pistol drills. Was the grip blued or painted do ya think?

    Dave - The grip is always blued, the barrel is usually chrome vanadium plated and the gear is painted. Some chucks are chrome and some are blued.

    Straight drill bodies are chrome vanadium plated or blued.
