A SHORT HISTORY OF SELLERS COMPANY
The William Sellers Company, in the late 1800's, introduced the 60 degree thread form which ultimately became the U.S.
Standard. Then, in the early 1900's, William Sellers Company again introduced another innovation, the Sellers Drill Point,
which later also became the standard drill point form in the U.S.
At about the same time, William Sellers Company developed the Sellers Drill Point Sharpener to grind the new drill point form
they had introduced. Universally recognized as one of the first, and possibly the finest Drill Point Grinder, the Sellers Drill
Point Grinder was a dramatic innovation when it was introduced in the 1920's, as it allowed all shops to re-sharpen drills to
"as new" standards; eliminating "freehand" sharpening..
The simplicity of design, the rapid learning cycle, the ease operation, and the ruggedness of the machine made for the quick
and widespread acceptance of this extraordinary drill grinder. Now, over 80 years after its introduction, with several updates
to the design, Sellers Drill Point Sharpeners are still among the most efficient Drill Grinders available. We regularly see Sellers
Drill Grinders built in the 1920's, still in daily operation.
In the early 1950's The Farrel Company of Ansonia, CT acquired the William Sellers Company. Some time later the name
SELLERS was abandoned in favor of the trade name FARREL, but the basic design remained the same and replacement parts
were and still are interchangeable.

The Sellers principle of Drill Grinding results in drill points that cut faster, drill through more inches of metal per
grind,and produce holes that are true cylinders. It is easy to produce a scientifically correct drill point with a
