RE: [MedievalSawdust] Article on the history of hand drills
I have several period hand drills. One is dated to the 16th or 17th century, and the other is dated about 1740.
Ill snap some photos and post pics.
The 16th/17th century one is a spitting image of those found on the Mary Rose and Vasa ships that sunk.
