Pre-1976 electric hammer drill??
 
2 Attachment(s)
Found this in my mother's garage today, cleaning out for a moving sale. I think it is a electric hammer drill?? For concrete work maybe? Wondering if anyone can tell me a bit about it and provide a clue as to what I should put on it for a price. If it's junk or if it's worth a little something, I don't have a clue.

I was able to figure out it was pre-1976 by looking up Black & Decker labels on line, and with this "address" and identification, it is pre-1976. That's all I know. It does work as far as I know.

May be an electric hammer. Are those star bits.

That's an oldie---Black and Decker use to make heavy industrial tools---a lot of those are still in regular use--

That one is a collector ,not a user--so I doubt if it has much monetary value--
Let's see what some of the tool junkies have to say.

The old B&D core drill I one used sold for a lot---but they haven't improved the new ones--so although old it was not obsolete.

That cord is sure in good looking shape to be that old, be careful with that one, if it shorts it has got you.

Wow, a nice piece of vintage B & D. I also found an old B & D regular drill from the 60's that still works and is built like a tank. That hammer drill would certainly make a man out of you in a hurry!

Thanks to all for the input so far. Sounds as though it may be an alright piece for someone, but nothing collectible. Guess I'll put like $20 on it and see what happens?

Sound like a price a curious tool lover will pay---good luck.

Old hand tools can be surprisingly valuable----if you have any old planes or measuring tools---those can be a prize for a garage sailor---
