The Cleveland Twist Drill Company 1-29 Index
« on: January 01, 2021, 07:27:43 PM »
I won an auction for this brass bronze alloy drill index. 29 bits from 1/16 to 1/2 in 1/32 of an inch.  First one I have seen with a case.

Updated.  Shout out to Lou for the info.

Hello, Yadda. Good score, the cases are hard to find, especially with the matching index!!!

No. Not really, but it seemed right when I wrote it.

We all do, but twist bits were originally developed, I believe, for metal drilling; but they turned out to be useful for wood.  Plastic.  Jello.
