Yankee Push Drill

The Yankee Push Drill, by renown tool manufacturer Stanley was a popular item sold for decades until 2004, at which point they suddenly stopped making them. This custom-made release for Garrett Wade is a beautifully finished, fast-working, and very special tool, made of the same materials and furnished with original double fluted bits. Made of chrome-plated solid brass, the functional tool, includes 8 bits neatly stored in the top of its handle. To use it, simply choose a bit, and as you push down, the bit rotates clockwise, cutting the hole, when you stop pushing, the handle springs up and the bit rotates in the other direction - essentially self-clearing. Every woodworker should have one of these. watch the video below
