The Famous North Bros. Yankee Bench Drills #1003 and #1005 Adverts
Easily one of the most sought after of bench top hand powered drill presses, the North Bros. Yankee Self Feeding No. 1003, single speed and No. 1005, two speed Bench Drill Presses were the top of the line tools as most North Bros. Yankee products were. Still prized and used today, if you come across one, grab it. I used to have the 1005 and it was a beast.
These adverts are from an early 20th century issue of The Carpenter, the magazine of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBCJA). You can read through the entire online archive of past issues at the University Of Maryland digital library.
