Nelson Spofford's clamshell-type chuck, originally patented in 1859, is not that rare, but this, although unmarked, appears to be a very rare example of Spofford's 1880 patent, rated A for rarity in Pearson.? Although the chuck mechanism is basically the same, this version uses two separate pieces rather than a single split piece to hold the chuck.? The patent description explains that this allows the chuck to be made of common cast iron rather than spring steel.? The second piece to the chuck is hinged, instead of pinned as in the patent description.? 10" sweep, beech head and grip.? You'll see 100 common Spoffords for each one of these.?
