Remember when Black & Decker changed its model numbering system in January 1970? In many cases, their power tools remained the same but were given new model numbers. Pre-1970 model numbers had a “U” prefix if they were household models, followed by a three-digit model #.
Thus, out of curiosity, I would like to know all about B&D’s original 1969-70 lineup of the 17 commercial power tools that were also sold to the people they classed “serious do-it-yourselfers.” It is this issue of Popular Science magazine from September 1969 that influenced me:
Among the original 17 commercial-duty tools B&D offered in 1969 (1970 model numbers are listed since I do not yet have a 1969 catalog of these)
If anyone has a 1969 B&D consumer power tools catalog with these tools in it, please reply to this topic.
