Ruger Egg Beater DrillRuger Egg Beater Drill Bill Ruger only made this design drill for a short period, but each of these has subtle differences.  The pics show the differences.  The bottom one is missing its end cap.

The middle one is blued and appears to have never been painted with the typical red paint Bill Ruger used. Restored? I am no expert and do not know all the fine points, but this one sure looks right, and great.

The paint on the top one is so bright I am going to go out on a limb here and say it was redone.

Seymour Smith Bit Braces in Display Box - NOS2 Seymour Smith No. 2310 10" Bit Braces in Display Box - NOS  After Bill Ruger moved on from his short lived foray into the tool / drill production arena, Seymour Smith produced their 2310 brace as part of their own line using Ruger's design / patent ideas.

The cardboard display box measures 15" x 8" x 9".   The display box has some moisture warp issues but is still sturdy and will be an excellent display. Both bit braces are new old stock and in great shape.  It is a great design and very smooth working ratchet system. Note the condition of the name stamps on the end of the pads.  Top of the line.

Stanley # 2101A Bell System B Bit BraceStanley # 2101A 10" Bell System B Bit Brace  The 2101 is considered by many to be the finest brace made. This example is very nice with nearly all its plating and showing little signs of use.  Very very nice.

This brace sat unused for many years, and as is typical the green grease inside had hardened and gummed up the works. Thanks to the step by step instructions found on Georges Basement Tool website I was able to disassemble, clean, and re assemble it in a reasonable amount of time.  All was good inside.  It now operates flawlessly and will last another lifetime.

L. L. Davis Patented May 25 1886 Bit BracePatented May 25 1886 Davis Bit Brace  I see one patent date on the small ratchet knob. It is marked Davison the brass chuck.  That patent was granted to a John Bolen.  The condition is very nice with minor nickel losses and some rusty spots.  The ratchet works and the chuck is pretty nice.  This would clean up to be much nicer.
