Oldvelo, part of my job when I worked was to purchase the tools for the shop floor including hand drills. We were constantly being asked why the drills we bought cost 5 to 6 times more than the B&D and their clones in DIY stores. Our reply was always "value for money" . The DIY drills would have had to be treated as consumables due to the short life they would have had.

Hi, yes the drill stand in the ebay link looks like the B&D SD0506 which would hold their larger heavy duty drills, and it looks as if the base was broken and been welded and L/H part that holds the chuck end of the drill looks as that has broken off and is missing. The DIY B&D's were just that and were subject to less than a continuous duty cycle, where as with the likes of Wolf were aimed more towards industrial use, an of course were more expensive.

This DIY milling head I made, uses a motor from a B&D lawn mower that I had given me, and it had a hard life on my rough terrain grassed area. The frame of the mower rusted away and the wheels fell off, but the motor still woks OK, I've coupled it to a two speed gear box from a B&D drill and put the single speed gear box on the drill, which is years old and is still working fine.

B&D DIY drills were not that bad and were in a budget bracket that my father could afford back in the late sixties, so no real difference than budget stuff these days.

Just to say I have never had any connection with Black & Decker or any company associated with them.

Regards Nick.

There is a whole procedure involved, like everything else on this historic Myspace-era site. You have to click on the SHARE icon on the video on Youtube then copy the EMBED link into the box that pops up on this site when you click the Youtube icon at top of your post.

Or something like that.

I have a floor standing tredle drill by Sheane Brothers of Wicklow.It is pictured along side of their lathe,it has two speeds and not one as listed.The belt is round leather and to use the same belt for both speeds one lifts the column allowing the belt to move from small to large pulley.Possibly a 100 years old.

What I did was click share on the yt video, it gives you all the social media to choose from, or just copy link, so copy link, then added it to the box that pops up when you click on the yt symbol in the msg box on this site?
