    I bought a Stanley 45 on Ebay. Currently in the process of cleaning it. It came with a bunch of blades and also some loose pieces. I don’t think they belong to the Stanley 45. But what are they used for? What are they?

    None of these items are for a Stanley 45. The bits in the bottom row are for a Stanley or North Bros. Yankee push drill.

    Thanks Dave, I’ve never heard of a “Yankee push drill”.

    Stanley Spiral-Ratchet screw-driver….. aka Yankee Push-Drill.

    They come in various iterations by many makers, including a variant that uses small drills as well as interchangeable screw-driver heads…………
    Been around for decades.

    Here’s a short article with pictures of various Yankee push drills. They are very handy and can often be found cheap.

    The square head bolts at the top could be from an old lathe as could the item in the top right of the first photo.
