Stanley Yankee No. 2101 Bell System 10" Ratchet Bit Brace Nice condition Yankee 2101 10" brace. In addition to the Bell System mark it looks like SMUD the local utility owned it as well. Some minor plating losses, but it all works fine. It will be a good user.

McClellan Patent Folding Breast Drill This is the same as above in slightly lesser condition, and missing part of the chain drill mechanism if it ever had it. I am thinking it was probably offered with or without.
Mr. McClellan was a prolific inventor of drills, both breast and corner, and used MF parts for many of his basic ideas. (He worked for them at one time) This one has been painted by the previous owner collector and all seems to be OK. The crank is marked with his name and the phrase SOUND BEACH which was the location of another maker of breast drills, Adams. On the other side is a Patent date. Perhaps they worked together for a time. More research is needed.
