    All finds are found on private property with permission from the land owner. No exceptions.
    No drill finds yet. Fingers crossed! Those posted are awesome

    Here's my two best: one Onondaga Chert, and the other - I suppose - is Jaspar. Both about 2.5 inches long.

    Had about as much luck finding a good drill as I have a good celt, but I'll throw on what I have for the sake of the thread. You fellas really have some exceptional drills. I'm enjoying seeing what's out there.

    Here's one I found on a drained lake bed. Made from what appears to be an old Kirk Corner Notch.
