Skil Drill with strange handle
« on: November 21, 2020, 10:48:03 PM »
New to the group her and my first post. I recently purchased a Skil Drill model 80 1/2” 115 volt 4.5 amp 459 rpm with a D handle and another handle on the top. The upper handle has 2 bits of information on it; Pressure Handle Co., Wilkes-Barre PA, Model G and Ingersoll Rand Power Feed cat. No. R55. I will post pictures tomorrow. Does anyone know anything about this drill and handle?

Not sure what happened with the full drill picture. I see it but it’s tiny and terrible! I’ll repost it.

When I resize from 3m to get to less than 250kb, 640 by 480 seems to work, many time 800 by 600 is just a little too big.
It looks like the  topside handle says "power feed" never seen that before on a hand drill. Interesting !

I used to have a drill just like that, but the top handle was just a piece of pipe. Watch the torque on that drill, I was thrown 5 ft. and both handles broken off when the bit grabbed.

That tool is a beast!! i'm guessing an Industrial application, with the Ingersoll Rand attachment being aftermarket. Thanks for posting!!

It cost me a whole $10 at a flea market and runs like a champ. You’re right about the torque too! I’ll try to post a link to a video showing me taking off the power feed handle. I have no clue what it does but as you rotate it, an inner wheel rotates.

maybe some type of clutch to limit torque at times?
