Is that even a "thing"? Unlike clamps....sometimes one should draw the line...? Spent some time in the shop, tonight....cleaning a few drills....braces are in 6" sweep up to a 14" sweep. Stanleys, Millers falls, a 12" PEXTO, and even a couple marked Germany ( and NOT West Germany, either) Some of these needed to see the wire wheel....rust spots. Some needed a drop of oil, here and there...makes them turn a bit better ( pun intended)....I can understand this mob of drills....may get rid of a couple duplicates..maybe...however, it is a different thing with these critters.. Do I really NEED 10 of these? The biggest is a Millers Falls No. 2-01.....the smallest has a new chuck.. Hard enough to tighten the chucks on the larger ones...Craftsman 1/4" chuck...takes a key. There are two Craftsman drills here..black handle I thought was a M-F No. 5..is a Craftsman. All blue with the red knob? Stanley Handyman. Light coloured wood handle has a surprise... Slides open to store bits in the handle... Millers falls, Granit, GM CO., And a Goodell-Pratt...The gray-framed Craftsman and the big M-F #2... Did a test drive into a few knots. I was wiping these down, oiling them up, wire wheel as needed ....Two others got to join the fun.. May give the G-P a test, later.....may just keep the better ones...in a small, medium, large set up...Not sure IF I need 10 eggbeaters.. Bad enough with at least that many braces..and squares.. Will see how this goes.....have planes to sharpen, a few well used chisels to freshen up... Normal Downtime after a Project... Too many drills?
