Named for the bevel gear mechanism they share with the kitchen implement, egg-beater drills allow precision and control that make them well suited for small and delicate work. This replica is closely based on the collectible Whitney patent drill originally produced near the end of the 19th century. A relatively small drill, it excels at predrilling for screws and other light-duty tasks.
Like many tools of the time, the original had intricate hand-painted decoration that we have chosen to cast into the tool; you can detail them with paint or colored lacquer if you want to highlight the vintage aesthetic.
Two collets are included, one that accepts drill bits from 1/64" to 3/64" and the other drill bits from 1/16" to 3/32". Made of a tough zinc-aluminum alloy with a black powder-coat finish, with stainless-steel chuck and collets and a wooden crank handle.
Made in Canada.
