My father started teaching me how to use hand tools at the age of three or four. This was one of my favorites.
I love the wood handles and the gear, painted red. It still works beautifully, turning smoothly. The sound it makes brings a flood of wonderful memories.
I played The Color Scheme Game in reverse, wanting to be true to the colors of the Twin Handled Hand Drill. The Dominant Color is Yellow / Orange. I chose to use a triad color scheme by making the background blue. (Yellow/Orange, Cool Red, Blue)
