Hand Drill Sculpture #2

This is the second of two Hand Drill sculptures we have here at the shop.

This one is a bit more modern than the other and is somewhat more colorful. This one is also a two speed model but is ingenious in that it takes a much simpler approach in how you change speeds.

While most likely much less expensive to produce and thereby available to a larger audience, the trade off is that changing speeds involves removing the crank handle and repositioning it so that it engages the spindle gear from a different radius point on the crank.

What I love the most about this drill (other than the color) is that someone really had their head on straight when they figured out a way to create a two speed drill without infringing on patents AND did so to produce a less expensive product. I love ingenuity like this - especially when you can see it in action.

This drill also has a shoulder/knee rest where the user of this tool could really bare down on it to do some serious drilling.
