My Rehabbed No. 85

Here are the pics of my newly rehabbed drill nicely done by LONE PINE TOOLWORKS.

Do you know about Ted?

Ted at Lone Pine Toolworks provides restoration work for hand planes, hand drills, and various other woodworking hand tools as well as a full sharpening service for plane irons, chisels, and jointer and planer knives.  And he does excellent work.

I recently asked him to restore my No. 85 Miller Falls drill and the work he did was FANTASTIC!  His improvements made my drill far better than the original drill.  Here are the before pictures / video.

Check out his blog post about the improvements he made to my drill:

I’ll post pictures of my new drill once it arrives.
