Noted for its several varieties of bit indices, this type is the mahogany cannister type, with rotating head, patented in 1902. This example was built to hold the Morse No. 9A set of straight shank wire drills consisting of 30 bits, in alternate numbers of 1 to 59. 13 of the original set of bits (in the larger sizes) exist. The index is in top condition, with nearly all of the original varnished and nickeled finishes remaining. The is the smallest of this type of index, measuring just 2 3/8” diameter and 4 ½ inches tall. It is the hardest size to find for a collection. Fine.
