    Push Drill - $30

    The topic of push drills comes up now and then. Although I paid much less 20-odd years ago for mine (of course I made much less $$ too), this is now a very good price:

    I had several, let go at garage sale for about half a buck each. No regrets. Same with a couple Stanley push screwdrivers. Never did like using those.

    Hey, that is the first cordless screw driver I've ever owned!

    I think I still have a Yankee drill around here somewhere. It was probably the first "power" tool my dad let me use as a kid.

    I think that was my first tool too. Still have most of the bits. I keep it in the storm shelter along with some other basic tools for a rainy day when power may not be an option.

    Got one of those. Would be useful if I could just find some bits for it!

    Jim, Garrett-Wade sells sets of bits for about $20. They're listed in the link Glenn gave above.

    Jim,

    From the linked site...

    "Incidentally, if you have an old Stanley Push Drill, our Spare Set of 8 Bits should fit it."

    Might give them a call...

    (Vaughn beat me to it....)
