    It is on Ebay, seller says that they can't see the manufacturer but it is made in Germany.

    They still seem to make hand drills but not with the bevelled gears from what I can tell. Hand Drill - Heavy Duty - Drills, Taps & Dies - Product Range

    More info I found from post in 2012 seems he thought the bevelled gears made great drills but remembers an American made drill being better than his Boker Hand Powered Drills

    My 1931 Heinrich Boker catalogue lists seven hand drills, all straight cut gears rather than bevelled according to the illustrations.

    As I mentioned ended up making an offer on this drill $20.00 $35.00 all up when you include postage not cheap but I was interested in seeing how the beveled gears worked.
    It arrived a few weeks ago and I only got around to cleaning it up last night to use.

    First I disassembled what I could easily.

    Then give it all a scrub, rusty bits went in some Phosphoric acid

    Reassembly with a coating of light oil.

    Complete

    Testing with a 7mm brad point bit in some Queensland Maple, Really too big of a bit for this sized drill.

    First thing you notice is it is absolutely silent no purring that you get with the normal straight cut gears. Considering the size of the bit it worked very smoothly,

    Next I tried a 4mm bit in the same piece of timber. It was really smooth and went through it with ease.


    If you where to be drilling a lot of holes with an egg beater drill for some reason then I think the bevel cut gears are nice, But the difference is not so great and part of me missed the purring of the normally geared drills .


    Mike.

    Nice cleanup job Mike. Is that a brand label on the handle that might tell you who made it? I suppose having the helical gears means that more than one pair of teeth are engaged, therefore making it less prone to breakage?
    Cheers,
    Geoff.
