  1. some months ago I used a big project to purchase a couple of pricey tools one was a milwaukee 18 volt circular saw. The weight took some getting used to as I was used to the old school heavy grade worm drive skillsaw. SO I've been using the thing. I gotta say I am really impressed. The prior experience I've had with cordless has all been bad. No power what power there is is fleeting and the batteries run down. They were awful so I didn't buy any. But I'd been reading lately that things have really improved. So I got one. Just one. The saw and two batteries ( two because I still didn't have faith that they had any staying power) and the charger. Well I ended up never using that second battery but one time. The thing is rugged and powerful. One time I ran the battery down on a single job. I was cutting 6" wide dados in several 6 x 6 in beams to use as interlocking joinery. I sliced hundreds of cuts and then used a chisel to make the dadoes. Other than that one time I've never run a battery down. I never noticed any flagging of power in the tool. So now I guess I'm sold on cordless. So I just got a milwaukee half inch drill / driver. And playing with that a little I am very happy with the tool's capability and power.
  2. Picked up a 20 volt drill yesterday off of Craigslist. It was still sealed in the box. Paid $40.00 for it because I paid that much for a replacement 19V battery a while back. He had another one that was opened and charged up. It features a pulse mode instead of a hammer mode. I left it in the box, thinking I might give it as a Christmas gift. I though it was made in Germany, but it was from China.

    Drilling it Down

    A few weeks back, I posted a thread about a pick that included a Black & Decker corded drill kit. I also have alluded to the fact I may have a problem when it comes to the number of corded drills in my possession. Since the temperature is dropping and we alternate between white-out snow then momentary sunshine and now darkness, I thought I would present this thread for your entertainment, amusement, amazement and harassment. Enjoy the show. WARNING: Proceeding beyond this point is at your own risk. The content of this thread is not advised for those with rational thought processes or hoarding phobias. Some restrictions apply. Void where prohibited. Must be 18 to enter. So it began one December 7th many years ago for my 17th (maybe 18th??) birthday I think. I received my first power-tool. A Skil, 3/8" VS Model 569 drill. Who knew this would eventually lead to an addiction. I did replace the swithc once several years ago. Shortly there-after, my dad also gave me a 1/4" Mall Model 143 drill that had belonged to my grand-father. It has to be from the late 1940's to early 1950's. The original cord finally disintegrated. I replaced it 35+ years ago with the current cord which now needs replaced. I need to search out cord strain reliefs although the spark plug boots i used to use worked pretty well. These were my primary drills for years both at home and occasionally in my work life. The Mall has a piece missing in the replaceable handle portion which is the way I inherited it. That nugget of information is relevant later on in this drill dynasty. Next up is my Black & Decker 1/2" VS, Model 7210. It's story begins in the first JD Dealership I worked. That was in 1973. The drill was already in service and likely had been purchased in the late 1960's from Grainger's. The dealer eventually closed so we parted ways for a year or so. A new dealer reopened the dealership and I was recruited as the Service Manager Low and behold the drill and I was reunited as most of the tooling from the old dealership had been purchased. Some time later, one of the "rookie" mechanics pushed this drill beyond its limits. The armature windings separated from the commutator bar. A replacement was needed immediately and as luck had it, the Mac Tool Rep had just began carrying a new line called Makita. We purchased a 1/2", VSR double insulated drill upon his recommendation. We sent the B&D in for repair evaluation estimate. The cost to replace the armature, brushes and refurb the drill came back more than the new Makita so this drill got tossed back in the cabinet. Several years later during a clean-up session the drill was set out to be trashed. I asked if I could have it and was granted the request. It laid in a box at home for a number of years. I finally made a trip to the old B&D Service Center in Indy, bought an armature, couple set of brushes for around $35 at the time. Finally had to replace the cord a few years back. While doing some remodeling work at my daughters, either my ex SIL or oldest grandson apparently dropped the drill on the "nib" on the upper back handle breaking it in the mounting screw/rear bearing housing. Calling B&D/DeWalt Service Centers all over the country yielded no parts available. I eventually was able to locate a "parts donor" drill but not before lots of searching which leads to a long tale yet to come. I have the original manual and dead-man handle for the drill also. It was and still is a great drill...low RPM and lots of torque. In the midst of the above I acquired this old Sioux, 1/4" in-line drill. It was given to me by a former mechanic. Probably from the 50's. The switch was bad as was the original cord (dry rot). It is the same frame and motor unit as the old Sioux hard-seat grinder. Instead of the angle seat driver head, Sioux offered an alternative drive head. I came upon a used hard seat grinder the Mac Tool Rep had traded for. The gears were bad, but the was switch good...gave a couple bucks for it. Replaced the switch. This drill still gets a lot of use running a carbon cleaning brush and other wire wheel attachments. Probably will need a new cord in the not to distant future. Somewhere in the 90's, I had a need for a D-handle 1/2" drill; something that would do heavier duty work than the 1/2" B&D. My wife bought me this Craftsman for Christmas one year. VSR model. Actually my first reversible corded drill. I primarily have used it to run a paddle to mix drywall compound and thin set mortar. Maybe have drilled a couple dozen 5/8" dia. holes in steel with a twist bit. The (3) on the right followed. The left one is a 1/4" Dunlap made for Sears; circa late 40's early 50's; bought at a flea market for a couple of bucks; it works fine, just needs disassembled, cleaned, new gear grease and the aluminum body polished; The middle is another Mall 143; another flea market find for $3; I originally bought it to use for parts my old 143 however it works great, so again just disassemble, clean, re-lube and polish. The one on the right is an old Montgomery Ward given to me by my late FIL. He got it in a box of crap treasures at an auction. Obviously needs a cord and the normal clean & re-lube. I've had it for years; just need to find round-to-its for all three. Close up view of the Dunlap tag. Also a Did just a little preliminary buffing to see how it would polish up. The Mall 143 tag. The "three amigos", oppoosite side on the far right. You can see they remain in their natural wild state...now where are those round-tu-its? Now back to the quest finding a replacement handle section for the B&D 1/2" VS. So I watched flea markets, yards sales, and even a few auctions to no avail finding a parts donor to repair this drill. Even eBay was coming up empty. Finally a hit on eBay...I won an auction for a 1/2" (one owner). If I recall about $14 with the shipping. However, when I got the drill, it was so pristine, I couldn't bring myself to cannibalize it. It had the dead-man handle but the cord had been replaced. It's the one on the left; I'm pretty sure it's a U-126 like the one on the right. Only single speed, but a very nice drill. The one on the right came later in the parts quest. Found it at a flea market for $8 with some weird coupling attachment in place of the chuck, but pristine other-wise. I bought a Jacobs chuck from H-F. $10 less 20% coupon so $8 for a new chuck bringing the total to $16. The parts quest continued...the one on the far right I believe to be a model 7120 although might be an 1161; both are 3/8" VS models. Anyways won that bid on eBay as a parts only drill...if I recall, it was ~$9 with shipping; might have been less...when I received it, as stated it did not work. Began disassembling to swap the handles and noticed a loose wire in the switch and wires not in the right locations; straighten all that out, and it works fine...so the quest rolls on. The one on the left is a Model U-100, 1/4", single speed; a little different rear handle design without the nub, but interchangeable. Picked that one up for a couple bucks...did the normal disassembly/clean-up; works great...the quest continues... While I continued to watch eBay, after two purchases all of a sudden these style drills began popping up like mushrooms. Seems every flea market I had tried before now were crawling with them... These 2 were next; a 7110 I think, 3/8" single speed in the original metal B&D box for $5. Another U-100 for $3 but needed a cord. H-F has 10' neon orange and sometimes green extension cords on sale for ~$4 from time-to-time. I keep a supply of them as replacement cords; far cheaper than actual replacement cords. Both of these work great and needed minimal clean-up. Next in the quest to find a handle were the two on the right. Finally, success. I gave $3 for the pair. Robbed the handle off the top one. The bottom one while it will run, the front bearing is shot. However I could take these two and make one good usable drill should I need an extra. Unfortunately, by this time the disease had over taken me so.................................... At one of my favorite flea infestations, I stumbled on this Skil 599. Now knowing how hard finding replacement parts for the B&D had been, I justified this purchase figuring the cord and switch would interchange with my first drill if needed. Since it was only $5. As dumb luck would have it, this is a hammer, scraper, drill VSR, 3/8". It all works so.... The drill on the right beckoned me and since I didn't own a plain ole, 3/8" VSR and it was only $5, I succumbed. Knowing how hard parts might be to get for it, the left one appeared at a yard sale. It was in a bucket, chuck down with about an 2" of water...well the cord & switch is probably good and for $2...dang the luck, it cleaned up pretty nice except for a little erosion on the nose housing, works like a champ so... This one in the original case although missing some of the accessories..still needs refurbed when I find some of those round tuits so... This orphan needed a good home and for $8 in the original case with accessories and then.... This trio actually preceded the two sets above. The one on the far right is a U-203; kinda' rare; 1/4" 2 speed. I use it a lot with various brushes to do cleaning and polishing. A slightly different version of the U-100 in the middle, then I'm not sure of the model on the left, but a 3/8" VS. Of course when the first B&D 1/2" went down, I needed an immediate, budget friendly replacement so H-F to the rescue with this 1/2" VSR model....with a coupon it was $24 and some change with tax. It works great and have used it to mix thin set and drywall compound also. So.... It all started when this drill handle failed....so....... There is one more to this stable but current weather conditions prevent me from moving stuff out to get to the cabinet. It's an old Montgomery Ward (I think), D handle with a 1/2" pipe dead man, 5/8" chuck that belonged to my grand-dad I inherited when my dad passed. That drill cost me $200 about 50 years ago. I'll update this saga with it's unique story in the future. These of course are just my corded drills and does not include any of the cordless, screw-guns or drill presses. Once I get over my shame for this post and ya'll recover from the shock and trauma of reading this post, maybe I'll entertain you in another show. Just so you know, I have put back many other drills to allow others around the world to the joy of owning a corded drill if only for a moment. Assuming you remained conscious to this point, thanks for following along. BTW, if you were counting you should have come up with 26 drills total. I may have a problem???

    Rust Hunt on a Monday?

    Well, yard sales are over around here, until next spring.....there is a store downtown that has a basement section...called Junk Rescue... Finally had a little extra in my pocket.....decided to buy a few items... Sooo, THIS is what $20 + Tax will get ya.... Might need a little clean up....Chisel? Sold as "Clearcut" 1-1/4" wide Firmer Chisel....that rusty gear box? On the now cleaned crank handle.....Defiance...Made in USA...need a few drops of oil to get things moving.... Yep, two bits for a dollar.....inflation? They did clean up nicely.. Three are 4/16", one is a 5/16" Left a few things down there, but....save those for another day.
  5. Bought this at the local resale for 3 bucks. It had ugly rubbery green paint with nicely brown painted rosewood handles. I stripped all of that and did a complete disassemble, clean, and grease of all parts. The crank handle had a crack that I welded and re-ground. My final paint scheme of Oliver tractor green and black may not be a correct original but I like the way it turned out. I have a little green residue to clean from the gear teeth to call this one done. Does anyone happen to have a similar parts drill that would have a protective cover for the level glass? It is unfortunately AWOL!

    Strange tool department

    A few smaller toys.. 6" square for "scale". Pliers on the right are just pot metal castings, with a loose rivet....not even good tweezers This drill bit? At one time, I had a string full of cutters for this thing....all I think I have left is this 13/16" cutter. As for the last item...built by an importer of straight razors... A Mr. H ( Hermann) Boker & Co. of Germany. One half was "pierced" to let the other half through, then they were pinned together... When the jaws are closed up, profile is a hex shape. Tips of the handles have a "finger curve". May just set these aside....

    Two days of Rust Hunting

    Two days, two sales...meh. Stopped at Brandt,OH.....was just looking for a few parts.....found something else, instead... Has a span of just over 6", $5 each. Might be the same maker? No names on them. More to finish a "set", as I already had this one.. Fifty cents about a month ago.....has Great Neck for a maker. Just about the same size, as the new pair. Today, another road trip, another BARN SALE! Hey, the compass even had a pencil! Will complete the set. For some reason, I just can't turn down a North Bros. Yankee. Not sure what the eggbeater is....a few drops of 3in1 oil, and it was humming right along. There was one other item... Should last a while? These for items were...$5 total. Now, I just need to find out WHO made the drill....

    The Aldi Drill

    Well, I found myself at our local Aldi's today. That's where I buy the salt for our softener. Came around the end of an aisle and there was the drill I'd heard about. Kind of surprised me as our town is not real big. $29.99. I picked up the box and of course it's made in China but it also touted a 3 year warranty. 12V and though I didn't really need a drill I decided just to see how it is. They also had a jig saw and circular saw but I didn't pay much attention to them, didn't even notice the price on them. So, here's a first impression of what they're offering for 30 bucks. It comes with a decent case with metal latches, kind of unusual so I guess that's a plus. It's about the size and feel of my little 12V Black and Decker bench drill. I'm not a big B&D fan but that's been a great little drill. It's only single speed where the aldi drill has two speed ranges. The box says the gearbox is all metal, if it's Chinese metal that may not be a plus. The Drill also comes with a small set of drill bits and a driver with several tips. There's also a belt clip but I probably won't even attach that. The battery is a Samsung battery and comes with a charge indicator, something I didn't expect. It also comes fully charged, at least mine was. I've only ran it a very little but I'd have to say, first impressions are pretty positive. It feels good in the hand, isn't real heavy and seems to have typical 12V power. The charger and battery are the one hour type so that's nice. I'm sure it's a not a jobsite grade tool but for the money it seems a good value. Steve

    Today's "pickings"

    First off, I am not cheap,.....merely frugal... Picked a few things today, spent about $8.50.... I have a complete Metric set of these 3/8" drive sockets. My son needed a set of SAE Deep well sockets. $5 Original price was $1.99, yard sale price was $0.50 . I will use these more to clean up any "details" a beading plane may leave. NO, I do NOT carve... Bag #1, and.. Dollar for the two of them, gave me nine hinges....only Bag#2 had screws, though...wound up with three styles, three each.. I wonder where I can use these.... Next, sitting UNDER those two bag was this thingy Did not see the chuck key anywhere...drat. A 1/4" drill bit will not fit in that chuck. marked as George A. Terry, of Buffalo, NY. More for working on MAC aircraft...might make some use out of it The Boss spent way more than I did....oh well.
  11. In today's Email.....Paul Sellers was doing a review of a new drill from Aldi's.....18v Lithium ion. Seemed very pleased with it. Cost him about 24 pounds ( English money). Seems to think it will do the same as his DeWalt 18v. Seem to be about the same size. I guess I will have to keep a eye out around this side of the "pond" and see what they look like. Just a heads up...

    Friday Road Trip

    Getting in a rut....another road trip to pick up the Fighting GrandBRATS....might as well have a little fun on the way to get them... Stopped in Brandt, OH again.....was after one item, wound up with two... Cheap drill and a small saw = $11 out the door. Saw is a Warranted Superior 4" x 24" backsaw for a miter box. The drill? Millers Falls No. 104, aka "Buck Rogers" this is the smaller of the two they made. I thought it would go nicely with another tool.. Millers Falls No. 100, Buck Rogers push drill. Lets see, on that saw....very faint trace of an etch.....was missing one bolt in the handle, nothing bent or broken, or even a crack. Drill...Handle did not have it's supply of bits....no biggie. The No. 100 I had picked up last year.... Not too bad a day?
  13. Folks, I am in the market for a set of brad points. Namely in the smaller size sets, say from 1/4" to 1/2" so I guess that would be a set containing four bits? 1/4", 5/16", 3/8" and a 1/2". Or something in that manner. I am looking for very sharp clean holes, which all brad points will do for a period of time, but this is what separates poor from great, sharpness retention. If you use brad points, what do you use? Thanks folks!
  14. Folks, I need to purchase a Forstner style bit, to drill holes for chair rungs, the hole size is 5/8". My existing Forstner style bit does not eject the shavings out very efficiently and I end up with a smokey mess by the time I hit the bottom of my depth I need. What brand or style of bit would you recommend for this operation? The holes are 7/8" deep, I am using the bit on a drill press. Thanks for any help.
  15. Here is an interesting video of what a woodworker can do when necessity calls. Herb
  16. I have converted my drill press to variable speed using a 3-phace motor and a VFD. I have a digital speed readout using a Hall Effect sensor and a magnet on the quill shaft pulley. Right now, I have a speed range of ~60 to 2650 RPMs. Will this be adequate for most woodworking tasks? I still have a couple of changes using the step-pulleys but I haven't measured the speeds available.
  17. This video is a really slick way of finding and drilling true center without the lathe. We all have had a piece that we couldn't find center after removing from the lathe, because of poor planning.

    Latched!

    Went and bought the latch today. And even some holders. The holders had bolts,, need to go and buy some screws for them. About like the "tabs" you turn to replace a screen in the screen door. Will adapt them.. So, I got out that little No.6 eggbeater, and drilled some pilot holes. Had to use the smallest #1 Phillips screwdriver I had handy to drive four screws... I think this will just have to do. i did try to get a better picture of that lid. Camera kept trying to say it is yellow.....adjusted photo to show it more like what it really is in colour.. The only sap wood I had in the shop was either Cherry or Walnut. Might have gotten a little of each. Cherry heartwood for the center stripe.

    Honey-Do Project.....on hold.

    Well, determined that something in the wall had chewed through the wires to the porch light. Not wanting to go digging into said wall.....decided to go around the problem. Length of the better kind of E-Cord, a handy box, and a single pole switch were picked up. Decided to move the light fixture to the north a bit, to get away from the Gazebo's top. Placed it right above the back door, where it is UNDER the overhang of the roof. Snipped off the fancy end of the cord. Running from a wall outlet up to the handybox......and fight to get the wire through it. Made a short loop and then hooked the switch up. Black wire to the switch. Big 1/2" "D" handle heavy duty drill ( NOT about to use a brace & bit up there) with a 16" long 1/2" drill bit. Made a mark about half way between the door casing and the ceiling. Drilled straight through to the outside of the wall. Pushed the cut end of the cord through the hole. Things were going way too easy.......hmmm. A few staples to hold the cord in place. Went outside, and put a ladder up. Location looked GOOD! ( bad sign) Got the light fixture down from it's old spot....forgot to check something....wired the fixture in place. Assembled the Jelly Jar fixture onto the wall....went in to get a good bulb......wait for it....went to screw the bulb into the fixture......nothing to screw into......WTH?????? Well, left this mess un-plugged for tonight. Will have to go to Lowes or Wallie World tomorrow and BUY a new jelly jar fixture. #@#$$#@###@!!!. Just KNEW something was going way too good. maybe tomorrow, I can switch out the two fixtures, and THEN maybe, just maybe...have a back porch light that actually works. Somedays, ya just need to stay in bed....

    "Egg Beater" Drill Habit

    OK, by the standards established in other threads this is not a collection since it's <24, but it's something to do and keeps old tools and traditions alive; plus I actually use now 3 of these from time-to-time. My fascination with hand drills began at over 60 years ago as did my collection...I just didn't know I'd start collecting at age 3. In the picture below, top row, the drill on the far left belonged to my grandfather. There is no name on it and it is not to the level of the Stanley's beside it. The cap is stamped on top 1.59. I seem to recall similar drills in the Hardware Section of our G.C. Murphy Department Store. The cap unscrewed for bit storage but none of the bits remain...probably lost by me at age 3 or 4. I do remember bits in the handle. I would have to drag a kitchen chair over near the china hutch to climb above and retrieve the drill from on top of a cabinet above the hutch. I also recall getting my butt smacked as a deterrent from playing with the drill, but alas wasted effort. The Stanley Yankee Handyman (Model H1221A, Hy-Lo drive) next to it is my most recent purchase. I picked it out of a bucket of junk at a local Pawn Shop. I gave $5 for it. It has 7/8 original bits. It was pretty nasty but cleaned up nicely. The painted wood handle/knobs was cleaned with 50-50 Simple Green/water, then 3 coats of Johnson's Rust cleaned with Dremel & brass wire brush, polished on the buffing wheel then 3 coats wax. Nest to it, with the red flywheel is Stanley (No 1221). Same process as above to refurb. While a 1221, not the H model, so no bit storage or hy-lo crank. Think I gave $2-$3 for it. Next to it is also a 1221 (no H or bit storage) but is a hy-lo crank. I gave $1 for it at a local flea market. Last one on left pic is my prize I bought last fall for $3 at the Covered Bridge Festival. A Stanley Yankee, North Bros, H1431. The brand is on both the chuck and handle ferrule. The black and yellow is a John Deere made by Stanley. I bought this new in probably 1986-87 when Deere closed out their Carpenter Tool line most of which was made for them by Stanley. Has all eight bits plus I bought an extra set. At the time, my cost was less than $5 for all. It's also a hy-lo...very similar to the Red/Blue Handyman just a newer version. Gear tooth side of flywheels The 1.59 on grandpa's drill cap; Still have the original box the JD came in A little better pics close-up...my old phone camera is only 2mp I think I'll probably repaint the flywheel on the older H1221...pretty rusty and it's cast steel. The H1221A had some nasty chalk like stuff or maybe Liquid Nails where the bare paint area is. I tried everything to get it off and finally used some spray carburetor/ choke/ injector cleaner. It removed it, but took most of the paint too. I just can't bring myself to completely refinish; adds to the character don't you think? Anyways, one of my vices...I've let a few go if over $5 bucks or just completely worn out or junk, but at least these are saved. One of these days when I get I may refurb grandpa's drill...Time just isn't right yet. I have typed up a short story, rolled up and placed in the bit storage (since I lost the bits 60+ years ago) about it's history. My grandmother made sure I was the one to get it though! I intend it go to my oldest grandson. Edit: removed redundant pic

    Fresh Picked

    Had to go to Little Emerald City (county seat) today for lawnmower gas before it jumped $0.43/gal. Noticed there were a couple yard sales going on...nice day so look what followed me home.... Stanley Yankee Model 41Y with all 8 bits...1/16" might be slightly bent, but this drill has barely ever been used. A little surface rust which will clean & polish up nicely. No price marked on it, so when I asked, the guy said oh 2 bucks sounds fair...didn't even try to negotiate...bits are worth more than that. Didn't really need another one, but, it doesn't take up much space and it needed a family.
  22. I got tired of having my quick changers bits and tips in different places so I put 'em all together in one handy dandy little box with a magnet closure. Plus I made a little awl with a tungsten ( very very hard) point from a TIG welding electrode. The little short ones are held in place with magnets the drills don't need it.

    Still a skimpy weekend picking tools

    Well, yesterday was the 75 cent Push drill, Buck Rogers No.100 Today's little drive about.. Price sticker says $2 Stamped as a Made in USA PEXTO. Almost minty, very little rust spots to brush out. Has "PEXTO" stamped there, inside an oval. Chuck is a "Holdall" style. Jaws still have their springs, and work jut fine. Wood appears to be a Rosewood. Might be Walnut, but it is full of black streaks in the grain. remains of a grayish label on the sweep handle. This is an 8" sweep brace. Has a good ratcheting action. There are, though, three phillips headed screws to hold the top knob in place. Not too hateful, for $2? Kind of a slow weekend...
  24. What little I could get done, at least. Found out we were taking the GrandBRATS home a couple hours later than I thought....snuck off to the shop. Had a slab to resaw down to a batten...wound up breaking the bandsaw blade, digging out another (DULL) one, and finishing the cut. Then the planes took over. And the beltsander. and the spokeshave. Rounded both ends to match the curve of the top, Beltsander to taper each end a bit. No.3 plane and spokeshave to bevel the sides. Whew. Dust and shavings everywhere. Meh, it will have to do. The forstner bit was for that hole. Will come back later, add a counter bore for the post to sit in a bit better.. Doesn't have to go down very far...maybe 1/8". Did I say I made a mess..where is Igor when I need him..

    Slim pickings this weekend?

    Spent the last three days, a few sales here and there. Thursday was a single sale. A cheap, 1/4" drive ratcket, with a socket attached..quarter for it. I did spend another fifty cents on a tool kit.. Called a Leatherman Wave. 16 tools in one. Then on Friday, made another stop at a sale.....picked a decent tack hammer and these two thingys That is a 11ppi Disston Panel saw on top. 20" long Might take a little cleaning up? The other saw is 26" long, and is a 9 ppi. But...NOT a Disston.. Yes that is an Eagle, with a green background. Wide rim is stamped "Better Merchandise" Really? The "medallion " is not a bolt, there is no through hole under it. Might take a bit to clean this one one, too? As for the hammer.. Sitting there to the right of Saturday's finds. $5 PEXTO block plane, a 1/2 price screwdriver and a 1/2 price drill. Pexto was stamped into the iron... Says "Made in USA" on the heel. Screwdriver matched a few others I have...quarter for it. The drill? Well, instead of a wooden cap, this had a two-piece metal "lid". You rotated the inside lid, and a hole appeared. And, one at a time, 6 bits came out. More or less shake them out till you get the size you needed. Otherwise, just your normal $10 eggbeater. I guess I was paying for the bits, as well. Stopped at another sale, and picked a new-in-bag, Sunbrella brand cushion for the Pine 4x4 rocker. I also stopped by a BORG and bought a new bandsaw blade, as the one I have is getting a bit dull. Haven't found any names on the drill. Had to "set" the hammer head a bit, as it was loose. Nothing much to write home about.....
