    Not much to say, both have rings around the base of the knob, 1929 and later. One has the rib cast at the toe and the heel, started in 1933, one doesn't.

    Frederick,

    You do not 'need' a brace.

    A brace is handy for a portable bit driver. Many of the later models including the 2101 have the ability to be used with straight bits. A few of my longer...
