Ruger Egg Beater DrillRuger Egg Beater Drill Bill Ruger only made this design drill for a short period, but each of these has subtle differences. The pics show the differences. The bottom one is missing its end cap.

The middle one is blued and appears to have never been painted with the typical red paint Bill Ruger used. Restored? I am no expert and do not know all the fine points, but this one sure looks right, and great.

The paint on the top one is so bright I am going to go out on a limb here and say it was redone.

Seymour Smith Bit Braces in Display Box - NOS2 Seymour Smith No. 2310 10" Bit Braces in Display Box - NOS  After Bill Ruger moved on from his short lived foray into the tool / drill production arena, Seymour Smith produced their 2310 brace as part of their own line using Ruger's design / patent ideas.

The cardboard display box measures 15" x 8" x 9". The display box has some moisture warp issues but is still sturdy and will be an excellent display. Both bit braces are new old stock and in great shape. It is a great design and very smooth working ratchet system. Note the condition of the name stamps on the end of the pads. Top of the line.

L. L. Davis Patented May 25 1886 Bit BracePatented May 25 1886 Davis Bit Brace  I see one patent date on the small ratchet knob. That patent was granted to a John Bolen.  It is marked Davis on the brass chuck.  The condition is very nice with minor nickel losses and some rusty spots. The ratchet works and the chuck is pretty nice. This would clean up to be much nicer.
