Do you have a copy of "A Directory of Lancaster County Pennsylvania Blacksmiths"?  Published by MWTCA Area P August 2001. The book is copyrighted by the MWTCA.

No sir, I do not.  I pretty much rely on on-line sources such as the national archives, newspapers.com, ancestry, google books, and local library on-line archives.  The page I referenced above on my site relies on searches such as "vice maker," "vise maker," vise co," and so on.

Haven't actually used it yet, but it operates smoothly
The question will be can the plastic body hold up to the torque. It's very strong, but still, it's plastic

Usually on eggbeaters, the name is on the crank handle.   Once or twice there has been a name etched around the barrel of the chuck.  Not looking familiar to me either.

Hello, Aaron. You are pretty brave to have that drill in so many pieces, I would have either lost a couple of those pieces, or completely forgotten how to put all of that back together. Hmmm, maybe that's why you took the picture in the first place? Regards, Lou

Very nice boxes. I like those silver Craftsman carry boxes. I buy every cheap one in good shape I can find. I recently picked up a Kennedy style machinists tool box marked JC Penny. Last year I scored a Par X box by Snap -On. A tool box only forum would be neat. I just passed on a Craftsman top chest at the Habitat store. They $15.99 for it, but it looked like it has sat at the bottom of a lake for several years. I went in today and it was gone.

I don’t recognize the shape of the frame or the drive gear. Millers Falls and Goodell-Pratt were the most common of that style. Might be German.

I put a link below to the best MF, GP information.
