The Ultimate Brace by Reg EatonThe Ultimate Brace by Reg Eaton  This is the authoritative and definitive reference on these popular English braces.  It goes into great detail and explains the nuances involved to understand what is what and why some are better than others.  Like New. Very Nice.

McClellan Patent Folding Breast DrillMcClellan 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.
