I have one in my tool box that I bought new at the old Carter Lumber before it was put out of business by Lowe's and Home Depot.  I work with youngsters who don't even realize that their air ratchet works like a regular ratchet when you don't press the button.  They look on in awe when I break out the Yankee Screw Driver.

When I was a lad working for a upholstery place the owner had several of these but huge ones with some weight to them. He’d use one to predrill the furniture and the other to drive the screws into hard wood framed. I delivered the furniture with a ‘65 Chevy pu. Wish I’d of of gotten those drivers he was from England

IIRC, there's an all-metal Yankee push-drill in the tool box in the Van right now. It was my father's and has seen a lot of use. Gotta admit, 'though, I haven't seen it in a few years. The Milwaukee M18 has taken over for it.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I have one that got a ton of use when I disassembled a huge model railroad layout a few years ago. The benchwork was built in the 1950s and the previous owner clearly pre-drilled and countersunk 100s of slotted screws. One of these backed those buggers out with style.

Great tool. I know it's still around here, somewhere.

Thanks for posting.

Got an egg beater drill with a little chip in the teeth that makes it catch a bit when using it, makes me sad, I like to tool to work smoothly. Just can't throw it out.

I have a bunch of them  - one of the holes in my tool inventory (I haven't inventoried ANY screwdrivers or files and most of the antique and wood working tools other than the power tools...).  Probably at least  dozen and I'm guessing maybe a half dozen or more push drills.  

I used the heck out of one installing Drapes while in HS.  I use them still.  I also use eggbeater drills a lot for any non metal drilling.

Whats hard to keep up with on Yankees are the bits...  Those go missing most of the time...

My coolest and oldest folding rule:

[30954489572_f6ec982758_b]

1930s Lufkin.

I have and still use several of the wood folders with the slider. They're great for transferring inside measurements, such as casing out a window or door frame. No numbers, no errors.

I looked at those, Darrell, and like them.  Good price on the Lee Valley website, but the shipping is almost as expensive as the price of the adapter.

You guys if LV doesn’t have what you want just u tube yankee screw drivers you find lots of stuff there.
You can always make ur own adapters using a magnetic modern bit holder Darrell

Darrell, LV does have what I want, but again, the shipping is expensive.  Not sure how to make an adapter, as I think the end that goes into the Yankee bit holder is unique.
I think I'm going to be using a grinder and file to make something.
