I had paid a visit to my family home place. I retrieved a few tools including two metal bodied drill motors.
I remember using both of these as a kid. I am in my 40’s and my father had well used them years before I came along. One needed a new cord and the chucks on both were rusted shut. I also broke the gear boxes down and re-lubed them. There were dirt dobbers and spiders all through the bodies of both of them.
They turned out well. Yes they are one direction but I love to have a drill already chucked up with a bit under the bench. I hope they will give me the use they gave my father.
So go find that ole tool in the attic, barn or garage sale. Clean it up and you will be amazed at how well it will work.
