Item DR1 - Yankee No. 1445  Double Speed Hand Drill. 

This was North Bros. largest straight hand drill.  Without the frills of a ratchet selecting transmission, it does have a speed selector.  Just moving a toggle allows it to cycle between slow and fast rotational speeds.  The drill boasts a height of 15 inches, three jaw chuck with 3/8” capacity, and a large gear wheel diameter of 4 inches.  The hardwood main handle detaches to expose a hollow for storing bits (almost no one uses this).  This model was not continued by Stanley when they acquired North Bros in 1946, so it is little seen today.  The oft missing sidee handle is missing, hence the “Good” rating.  The drill runs smoothly at both speeds.
