Sure is pretty.

You could buy a couple of drill presses
for the price of that egg beater.....

I put that on my watch list last week. It's lovely. But I'm sure not going to buy it - I've gotta be a lot richer before I'd drop that much on a hand drill. Even one as beautiful as that. A plane - sure. A drill. I love my C12!

Ron, you might want to spend less time on eBay, it can be harmful to your wallet.

It's a great way to spend time when there's a blizzard going on outside...

Completely off topic (I couldn't even remeber how to use a hand drill now I've 3 Festool ones) but anyone know how bad the snow is in New York state? I am heading over there next week - Manhattan and the Catskills and am wondering whether I'll ever get there.
