Three Black & Decker Made In USA 1963 Drills
« on: May 15, 2022, 12:27:21 AM »
Open Box. All three drills; 3/8" and two 1/4", have 1/2" Spindles. Threaded Mount 1/2 - 20
No matter how much you cut off, it's still too short

Nice! I really like the classic chunky look of these older drills.
You might say I have a tool collecting problem....

Hi Yadda
Same here. And that chunky looks comes with a very heavy weight.
Here's a picture of those near 60 year old open boxes.

Man how those take me back!  By the way, I dig your photo, too.  Hard to believe but the old Model 12 was the fastest selling shotgun in the U.S. for many years.  The Remington 870 changed that.

Hi genog,
Yes, you summed things up just right. Thank you
A few days ago, I snagged me another 3/8". 1st and 2nd pictures
And the 3rd picture, here they are side by side. One on the left is the one up top; one of the three. On the right is the new arrival.
I'll tell ya, weren't nothing to consider. I mean if I caught a 4 pound bass. And right away I reeled in another the same size. Am I going to say, "I got one already, I'll throw this one back."
I do love that 900 RPM and metal trigger.

Very nice Model 12
I have a soft spot for vintage Power tools
I don't want to call myself a collector, but I won't pass up a vintage power tool in great well preserved condition

Been looking for vintage B&D and Porter Cable, and have yet to find anything at all, let alone gems like yours!

However, I did find this delightfully cool Sawzall

Hi genog
This National Treasure of yours deserves its own Post. Could this be from the 50s? And she's in beautiful condition with this case. Put this up. You're allowed up to 10 pictures. All 10 of them will be appreciated. I've got two Milwaukee Sawzalls; the 6523 and the 6538. But what you've got there is a rare  piece of history.

Thanks Omeomai.
What I'm happy about is that it was another 3/8" that turned up instead of the 1/4". But nothing says I can't put a 3/8" chuck on one of those 702 1/4" drills, the mount being 1/2-20.
Actually, I'm writing cause I wondered where you got to before I could ask you what sort of Antelope that is you got in the picture?
