Picked up a new variable speed, reversible, cordless drill yesterday. And it’s double articulated. Made by JO Mfg Co of calif, they were primarily making tools for government contracts during ww2. I saw a discussion that this model was used to build b-17 bombers, it could get into awkward places. Mine has (had) black and red paint which was for retail sale, so it probably dates from the early 60’s.

The handles bends when you loosen a thumbscrew, the head bends when you pull back 2 catches. Paid $20 at a flea market.

It appears to be a higher quality tool than those offered by 5 star, that's for sure. Cool tool.
