Remember the classic Yankee Push Drill that was once found in every shop and every jobsite tool bag? Made by Stanley for decades until they dropped it in early 2004, it was made of chrome-plated solid brass, and beautifully finished. Now we have had it custom-made for Garrett Wade.

This is a beautiful, fast-working, and very special tool, made of the same materials and furnished with original double fluted bits. Every woodworker should have one of these in his or her "quiver" because it is so useful. As you push down, the bit rotates clockwise, cutting the hole, When you stop pushing, the handle springs up and the bit rotates in the other direction - essentially self-clearing.

The bits are stored in the top of the handle and are easy to access. Just slip the size you want (any one of eight - 1/16, 5/64, 3/32, 7/64, 1/8, 9/64, 5/32, 11/64") into the collet chuck, put the drill tip on the surface and push. Makes a hole up to 1-1/2" deep. The entire mechanism is protected inside the steel cover. Incidentally, if you have an old Stanley Push Drill, our Spare Set of 8 Bits should fit it.

We also now stock replacement bits (3 each pack) of the three most popular (and fragile) of the smaller bits. (Note: These are more expensive to make than the larger bits.)

The Best For What It Does: Manage Your Expectations
Reviewed By:   (Berkeley, CA) 
I've had the old Craftsman version for years now, just bought the GW version last month and haven't test-driven the new one yet. Here's what I know from past experience:
The manufacturer's directions tell you most of what you need to know, but a couple points bear stressing.
- The bits are not intended to cut anything other than wood or plastic. they lose their cutting edge quickly when they hit metal or masonry. 'masonry' includes plaster and drywall, which appear soft and crumbly but in fact are a matrix of microscopic, very hard particles which do a number on any drill bit not designed for hard stuff. masonry bits are the answer to plaster wall-drilling.
- It's important to maintain a straight-in push when drilling. any lateral wobbling, especially when the hole has developed any appreciable depth, will stress the bit and tend to snap it off. the smaller the bit, the easier it is to break.
- Use a good-quality machine oil for lubricating this thing. not much, just a drop, the mfr says once every 6 months. a tiny smear in behind the bit-release collar and on the thread of the handle retainer ring won't hurt either.
It's the *original* cordless drill!

I lost my Yankee Drill some time ago, and was happy to find one again. I don't know how anyone can work without this invaluable tool.

Push Drill
Reviewed By:   (Mint Hill, N. Carolina) 
I've had my Yankee Push drill for probably 40+ years. Thru the years, the bits have gotten dull & broke a couple. Hadn't been able to find new bits, until I went to Google and Garrett Wade showed up as probably my only hope. Although the 8 piece bit set was rather pricy, I ordered them anyway. Happy to say they fit the push drill perfectly and work great.
