There is nothing like picking up an old tool like this with the all-metal heft and typically frayed two-pronged cord!

For some reason they emit a distinct “old-tool” odor from the motors when used. I feel like I’m back in school, sniffing the freshly mimeographed test sheet when I catch a whiff of an old motor 8^)

^.......This…...+1….....!! I have two of these old drills…..both Craftsmans.

One belonged to my grandpa, and one was my dads….!! I believe they were made in the ‘50s.

And both still work good…..And yes, both have the frayed cords. I haven’t used them in years….But I still got ‘em

My B&D Circular saw I bought 55 years ago I still use occasionally to break down plywood. Like above hefty metal. Keep it in the orange metal box it came in. Still runs great.

The fact that my entire body cracks like a glow stick when ever I move, and yet refuses to glow is very disappointing, and makes me ‘feel old’. :)
