I bought what I think is a hand drill in a flea market, and am interested in finding out (i) possible value, and (ii) a possible source of bits. Yes, I did a Google search, and am usually fairly good at that, but came up empty. Any knowledgeable advice appreciated.
It should be a drill, not a screwdriver, since the spiral goes only one way. Here's the details:
Yankee No. 42 North Bros. Mfg. Co. PHILA PA. USA Pat: JAN 25 - 98 OCT 9 - 00 FEB 10 - 20
Since the last patent date was 1920, I don't know the manufacturing date past that, but it's still old enough to have antique value, and is in pretty good condition.
