All seems perfectly normal to me!

But over on your other thread you say that some of these drills are for your 'bedrock fund' - you don't think that you'll manage to part with any of these treasures do you? :wink:

The answer really depends on where you ask it. Here? You're fine and, indeed, behind the pace a little. In the real world? You're a nutcase. :wink:

What is that one on the far right?

Any tips on cleaning these up I have 2 egg beater types and 2 Braces but I think only 1 of each is really salvagable.
Archimedes drill. fwiw, a few ruminations on how I clean eggbeaters here (including a link to another how to by Andy Seaman), and something on braces here.

I think you need one of the old metabos with the rectangular gearbox and the drill with the holes in the main wheel to have a really good set tbh :wink: :)

Its always the same, you want something for ages then end up with so many your tripping over the damn things :)
