Huge Black & Decker alum. drill....AGE????

I bought a Black & Decker, I think the plate says 450 rpm, drill off ebay Item# 7548771121 does anyone know about how old it is?

Couldn't read the model but the serial number is plainly stamped on the drill.
Runs great and has awesome torque!!

I had to laugh when I read the description that said it was about 8 years old!!

Thank you!!

jm2591,

They sure don't make them like that any more.
If you can post a direct link to the item it would save folks from having to search for it.

jm2591,

I can't say for sure but it doesn't look like an antique, especially looking at the protective rubber boot.
My vote would be that it is of the 70's or 80's vintage.
The wear patterns make it look to have seen commercial use.

Looks like a good one that's for sure.

re

Yes the D handle is coated with a rubber boot that extends forward. You can see part of the ring that you turn to reverse the drill under the boot. Up top you can screw a 1" pipe for another handle. It has a nice 3KD Jacobs chuck 1/8-5/8 in. 3-16mm. I wish I could read the plaque.

Anyone else?

This unit resembles a Milwaukee Model #: 1660-6 Compact Drill. It's single-speed (on or off). From looking at Milwaukee history, I would guess that this B&D drill was originally designed in the early 1950's. Improvements have occurred along the way, but the drill could be 40 years old or younger, based on what Milwaukee was doing at the time with its hole-shooter and plumbing drills around 1949-1951.
