Piano Makers Bow DrillsPiano Makers Rosewood & Ivory Bow Drill Both of these piano makers bow drills came from the same tool box along with a number of other piano tuning tools I have listed elsewhere. I got the lot of piano tuning tools, including several Rosewood Handle Tuning Hammers / Wrenches in a trade for some nice bench planes.

One bow drill is marked H. S. & Co. for Hammacher Schlemmer. I see no maker marks on the other which is not unusual. It is probably by one of the known New York piano tool and plane makers like Erlandsen, Brandt, or the like. Both are very similar to each other noting the difference in the shapes of the Rosewood handles.

The pads or bits shown fit either drill. Drill pads usually got separated from their drills and it is unusual to find bow drills with them. I will include five (5) with the sale of each or either drill. I will sell a couple separately at $25.00 ea. if you want to complete another drill you have. I also have one all wood bow (see last pic) that will be included with which ever bow drill sells first.

Craftsman Auger Bit SetsCraftsman Auger Bit Sets These 2 sets of Auger bits are two distinct sets.  Neither looks to have seen much use.  The spurs on all bits are good. Most have their protective caps. I had to clean them up a bit as there was some surface storage rust on them. As there are two sets, one w/ 6 bits, and one with 13, there are going to be repeats. Note, the 13 piece set is actually 12.  There is no # 11 / 11/16ths bit in either set.
