I really like the G-P hand drills. They are
beautiful, and there's a sea of models to choose from. A very
nice detail is that several G-P hand drill models are of the
same size and were made with removable handles.
Meet my Goodell-Pratt family. All these models
have detachable handles.
Top to bottom: Reciprocating hand drill no 656,
hand drill no 110, hand drill no 49 and hand drill no 4. All
three hand drills share the exact same body design, gear wheel,
gear ratio and pinions.
The handles are grooved on the inside and
secured against the body with tight threads which allows for a
secure attachment. These drills tend to have well secured
Twins separated at birth. G-P hand drill no 5
front and no 05 at the back. The only difference is the crank
knob and the top handle. These share the frame with at least
model no 4½ which has a rosewood handle. The handle is secured
to the frame by a bolt seated in the handle.
