Great Expectations Antiques

Circa: early 1900's
Condition: Very Good
Manufacturer: JAMES SWAN CO. SEYMOUR CT.
Offering this top quality T-handle hand drill auger combination in very good condition. The auger bit is marked by the maker; "JAMES SWAN EXTRA U.S.A.", plus there is a Swan logo within the maker's mark. In this case, the mark if very small, but a near perfect stamp. This spiral auger drill is very clean, no rust, no damage, sharp and ready to drill 2.0" diameter hole in wood. We note very little minor pitting here and there, and some pliers jaws marked on the main shaft near the spiral form. The auger is double cutting edge, double spur with very smooth polished spiral surfaces. The center lead screw is in very good condition. The auger bit has a threaded end nut that holds the bit securely in place when attached to the handle. In this case a square nut is used along with some washers for the proper pressure to hold the handle firmly in place. The auger bit has a .60" diameter main shaft and is 21.75" long overall, and the hardwood handle is 17.0" long and about 2" diameter. The handle is also in good solid condition, no damage, a minor wood grain separation noted no cracks, some light wear and minor dings, very strong and solid. The handle is fairly easy to remove from the auger bit, for easier storage.
