I saw this on here and my mind went back to when I had one of these, way back... flash back... to be honest, I think this one is still at the back of the shed. It stopped working after it was left outside, unbeknown to me, all over a winter season, which is not good for any electrical tool. But for some reason I don't think I through it out... sentimental I think...
Anyway, the main reason I remember this was the size of it, I mean, how often do you get something that's the size of a starter pistol that offers the power of a magnum 357..??? never. Until this cam along.
It's smaller than your standard corded drill, in fact, it's smaller than your cordless drills too, being about 160mm high and 200mm long. But for a small drill it has the power of a thousand elephants pulling a tractor across an ice rink...
The 6.5mm chuck is NOT key-less, (I told you it was old), so you do have to make sure that you don't lose the key as there's no chance of loosening or tightening the chuck without it.
On the left side, as you're using it, there is a depth gauge which consists of a 100mm long rod with a blob of thickness at the front end. This rod is pushed forward or backward along it's groove and locked in place with the wingnut on the front. This rid lefts you fix a certain depth so that you get a constant depth each time you drill.
The trigger is delicate and as it only offers one speed, fast, you have no control no matter how gently you squeeze the trigger. It's all or nothing with this one. Then there's the usual lock button on the side of the handle to lock the trigger in the on position.
The mains cable is about a metre and a bit so there's no real issues with being trapped to the plug socket. If you do need to get further away from the plug socket there's always an extension lead.
In all, it's a lion trapped inside the body of a domestic cat that, when unleashed, will rip through what ever is on front of it....although I wonder what it would be like if it were cordless..??? It's a catch 22 moment here.. it would be more mobile as a cordless but if it was a cordless it would lose the power.... so it's cord or power..???
It sells for about £50, which, If you can still buy one and you're after a powerful, easy to use and small power drill then this is for you....
