This is the description from "A Millers Falls Homepage"
"In 1938, the Millers Falls Company introduced one of the finest braces ever
mass produced. The brace, shown at top left, was designed by William J.
Parsons, the 'dean' of the design and engineering staff, to celebrate his
fiftieth anniversary with the company. The Model 5010 Parsons De Luxe Brace
features a full ball bearing chuck with Leland's universal jaws. The ratchet
is fully boxed, the handle floats on 'oilite' bronze bearings. The head also
runs on an 'oilite' bearing, but features a full thrust bearing as well. The
transparent red plastic (permaloid) heads and handles used on these braces
have been extremely durable. The plastic on most examples looks much as it
did over a half century ago." A picture can be found here under the heading
Millers Falls Parsons De Luxe Brace...................it's the next to the
last topic and the top brace in the picture.
I have one of these in excellent condition and was wondering what it might
be worth. Thanks for your help
