Not complete until you've got some North Bros. push drills - the originator of the Yankee brand name.  North Bros. was acquired by Stanley in 1946, and Stanley adopted their designs without much, if any, changes.

Now it the power goes out, how else would you drill a hole?   Ok, with a brace drill, or egg-beater drill, or one of the many other contrivances.   Having a set of bites right in the handle is handy.  Somewhere under the bench is box of spares, 6, or 7, may a few more.  On the bench is my trusty Goodell & Pratt push drill, plus my most recent purchase, that is cleaned and oiled,  ready to be tried out.   I love to show newbies how to get at the bits.
