Topic tags/keywords: black decker commercial duty power tools

How many of you here own (or would like to own) any of the following Black & Decker power tools I am going to discuss in this post? I cut off at 1993 since that January 20th marked the start of the Bill Clinton administration.

The reason I got so into stuff like this was because of watching Hometime (particularly the Dean Johnson and JoAnne Liebeler period, from 1987-91).

What I would like to find in the near-future (no way am I buying anything new) is:
1179 Professional 3/8” VSR Drill
1301 (also DeWalt DW120K) Professional 1/2” End-Handle Right-Angle Reversing Drill Kit
1309 (also DeWalt DW110) Professional 1/2” VSR Holgun Drill
1321 Professional 1/2” Reversing Spade-Handle Drill
1349-09 Timberwolf (also DeWalt DW124K) 1/2” 2-Speed Joist & Stud Drill Kit
1963K Professional 9.6V Univolt Cordless 3/8” VSR Drill Kit
1966K/5912K Professional 12V Univolt Cordless 3/8” VSR Hammer Drill Kit
2661K Kodiak 13.2V Univolt Cordless Dual-Range VSR Drill
2665K Professional 12V Univolt Versa-Clutch Cordless 3/8” VSR Drill Kit
3265 Professional 0.625 HP Laminate Trimmer
3310 Professional 1.5 HP Router
5036 Industrial 1/2” Reversing End-Handle Hammer Drill
5072 (also DeWalt DW510) Industrial 1/2” Dual-Range VSR Hammer Gun
5991K Kodiak 13.2V Univolt Cordless VSR Hammer Drill
U226-1/7260 1/2” Deluxe Reversing Frill
U244/7460 3” x 24” LCG (low center of gravity) 2-Speed Belt Sander
U365/7640 Commercial Duty Router

I also want to see pictures of all the B&D Professional/Industrial power tools (1993 and back) that you have.

Here are some of the few Black & Decker power tools that I do own thus far (not professional grade):

7190 3/8” VSR Drill w/ Infinite Speed Lock (have two – the orange one circa 1983 was an inheritance from my paternal grandpa)
7390 7-1/4” Value-Plus Circular Saw
7456 Best 1/2-Sheet Finishing Sander Assortment (if anyone near the 97267 area of OR has a spare #74-000 Dust Collection Attachment, please e-mail me at vintageben81@comcast.net or benjamin.marioe1@gmail.com)
7504 Jig Saw (I really want something more powerful than this, like a 7580, 7590 or 7566)

I have a B-D single speed, non-reversing, 3/8 electric metal body electric drill. I bought it 50 years ago, plus or minus. The only thing I’ve ever done to it was replace the switch. The sticker came off a long time ago, so I don’t know what model it is. It’s still going strong as the day I bought it – not like some of the other non-USA built thingees I also have.

That kind of drill could span many years. If you have a picture of it I could greatly help you out on the year.

Thank you,

Ben

BDfan – Ok, as soon as I figure out how to send a photo through the system. Biggest problem I have right now, is trying to operate a computer! Still in the learning stage.

I have a 1975 B&D 10” Radial Arm Saw, taken right fresh out of the factory in Lancaster, PA. in 1975. Back then, employees could buy one tool a year, and I knew a guy who worked there. Think I paid about $160 for it, employee pricing.
Still runs fine, never changed anything out save for blades and tabletops. Still got the lockout key in the slot on the front, even after the 7-8 times its been moved. Has that manual blade stop button on the back of the motor.

I also have a B&D 1/2” electric drill, I think 600 RPM. Metal casing, plastic handle, one speed, one direction. From the late 60’s. I don’t plug it in, scared it will go to casing ground sooner or later, and my Milwaukee Hole-shooter is way more stronger.

Thank you,

Currently trying to sell all three for a total of $225, not including shipping. I live outside of DC, but we could do flat rate shipping. Does that sound good to you?

Sorry to add a non conforming post but I could never imagine someone collecting B&D stuff and 1993 hardly seems old? I guess that’s the way it is when your old like me. Good luck on your B&D quest.

I have no idea how old it is, or that B&D even made worm drive circular saws, but I found this in my garage when I moved in. It’s been painted but it works. It takes an 8 1/2” or 8 1/2” blade, I don’t remember which

I’d prefer to buy it if it were made here in the U.S., rather than in Italy. Hence my cutoff years.
