Item B5 - Yankee (N. Bros Stanley Div) No. 2101A Ratchet Bit Brace.

This 12” sweep Yankee is marked on the chuck has having been made by the “Stanley Div” of the North Bros Mfg. Co. This means that it was made in Philadelphia sometime between 1946 and 1953, before Stanley moved the newly acquired Yankee line of tools to New Britain. It therefore has all of the original “Yankee” quality. Although it is in the 12” sweep, it is also marked as having been made for the “Bell System.” In my experience it is uncommon to find anything but a 10” sweep brace so marked. This example needs a light cleaning. The handles are of the black composite type, making it likely that the brace was a later Philadelphia made brace. The famous ratchet in this example turns over like a clock. Good+
