Early North Bros Yankee No 42 Push Drill. Measuring 9 5/8" long and it weighs 5 1/2 oz unboxed. Marked with the Nov 2 '97, Jan 25, 98 and the Jan 29, 01 patent dates on the ferrule. Good shape, the plating is good with just some light wear and scratches. This has a screw type chuck and not the slider one like the bigger push screwdrivers. The nut around the shaft has some wear, looks like someone (NOT me) grabbed it with a plier to tighten it which they did and it does not turn. But the spring is very good. The handle finish has some wear, these early ones were not painted red. But compared to a lot of these I see, it sure ain't bad at all. I am also including 4 bits for this that I just happened to have kicking around just so it won't be lonely. The tangs have a little patina but the tips are good and t is a lot of blade left. Cheap shipping! Right good collectible old Yankee tool for sure!

The full size picture is at the bottom of the listing page. Please read The Rules Of Game as well.

All items for sale unless otherwise noted are purchased and in most cases professionally restored by me. I take pride in offering quality items. Not everything is perfect, but it is as I say it is. Also, I smoke a pipe, drink whiskey, both cheap and good, and cuss more in a hour than most folks do in a month. If any or all of the above bother's ya, well then we ain't got no reason to be doing business.

(Formally known as The Fine Print)

Priority Mail items less than $50 are sent at actual shipping & with Delivery Confirmation plus a small charge for packing. Smaller items are sent via 1st Class mail with Delivery Confirmation at a flat rate which includes the cost of the padded mailer which I do NOT get for free (and they get more expensive as they get bigger in size so that is factored in as well) and the extra packing time. The only exception for both Priority and First Class are items that I feel are fragile or valuable enough that warrant insurance and that will be included in the shipping cost. I only ship via the Post Office. I do not ship UPS or Fedex (and they sure ain't any cheaper).

Ebay has been running promotions for sellers offering free shipping. If an item is not listed with free shipping, t is no way for me to take advantage of that promotion. Otherwise the shipping is as shown on the listing. I spend a lot of time and money in gas out buying these items, over and above the actual cost of the the item, and that is year round. I am always happy to combine shipping on multiple items, These are sent out at actual cost plus a small packing fee (which rarely goes over $2.00 no matter how many items unless t is something big or odd).

PA buyers must add 6% sales tax or provide an exemption certificate.

International bidders are welcome. International shipping is EXPENSIVE . On average 2 to 3 times what the listed USA shipping cost is. International shipments have a minimum $1.50 US packing fee in addition to the shipping costs. Email me for a shipping quote before placing a bid or a Buy-It-Now. Please allow at least 24 hrs for me to get the item packaged and the correct oversea's shipping costs after the auction has ended. I do not do any packing on Saturdays or Sundays . The same applies for shipping quotes before an item ends. Items over 1 lb in weight tend to get very expensive to ship internationally. Items that are over 4 lbs packaged weigh ARE very expensive to ship. Customs Declarations are at face value. I do not mark items as gifts.

Do not hit the Instant Payment if you are buying multiple items until I get you a combined invoice. I prefer to have things cleared up every 10 days to 2 weeks. Just please email me, and tell me that you are either bidding or going...
