Topic tags/keywords: question drill-driver

Inherited this drill from my father in law. I’m guessing it’s a ‘60 era drill(?) In original box, with owners manual. It’s really cool, but I need to ‘thin the herd’ of tools I own. Can anyone help with year of mfg, what it’s worth ? I plan on selling it and donating the money to the local H.S. shop. programs.

My guess would probably be somewhere in the $50-100 range if you can find the right collector that is into vintage power tools.

I dont remember WHO, but SOMEONE on here is into collecting old B&D power tools. Possible he might be interested in it. Search around a bit here and you can probably spot him.

I’m not a collector but, I’d give $50 for it if I saw one close by.

I see them come up from time to time and the better looking old, small, non-reversible drills are typically offered for $20 – $35. Given that yours is in exceptional shape, I’d say around $50 would be about right.

Here is a picture of an add for that drill.
It was $19.88 on sale in 1964 (normally $29.95)
