    I finished restoring a Henry Boker Hand Drill. Made in the 1930's, this German made drill is precision plus. The handles detach and can be reversed to the opposite site of the drill for left handed people. Every part (except the wooden handles and there couplings) is forged steel. This was powder coated in black flaked paint, and it had rust points every where and particularly in the crankshaft . The crankshaft was full of old grease and sand as well. After a week working on it, this is the result. Its working like it was just purchased off the shelf back in the 1930's

      Thanks Yougotta and Hotairfan. I hope to be posting some more projects I am working on - on this page. I am restoring a 100 year old scale set, so look out for that one. Cheers.
