Antique Hand Cranked Hammer Drill - Restoration

21 milj. näkymät9 025

    It was in spring this year when I picked up this beaten up antique hand cranked hammer drill. My friend has found it on the steel waste together with the german „Weltrekord“ ratchet screwdriver. The condition of the drill was super bad. It was very corroded, had a lot of missing screws, the handle was in very bad condition and the crank was bent so much you couldn't even make a full turn. That's all said, it was the perfect item for a new restoration video.
    At first I thought this should be a quick and easy project, but one problem after the other became visible and it turned out to be a real challenge. There was the big dent in the left side of the case. Usually you can't bend casted parts, but with a bit of heat and careful pressure on the arbor press I was able to remove it a bit. It also worked to get rid of the warping with some heat. For the finish of the housing I wanted to have an antique cast aluminium look. I thought it would look very cool if I could tumbler these parts after sandblasting. I ended up building a huge rotary tumbler from scratch and it worked very well (video link below).
    Another big issue was the tool holder and the drill bit, as they were both completly rusted. Big thanks to @Hand Tool Rescue at this point for helping me out with the dimensions on these two parts by disassembling and measuring his own hammer drill. After a bit of search on eBay I found a set of original Rawlplug drill bits. After they arrived I was able to measure the shaft and the taper of the drill to then turn a new tool holder. It all worked out very well and yes, the drill only holds with the taper ;-)
    Before I even started this project I just had one question in mind „How am I going to replace the messed up handle cover?“. My first idea was to wrap it in nice black leather like steering wheels are made. That would definitely work, but that's something I've never done before so I was quite sceptical. Then the idea of a heat shrink tube came up. That would be a very easy solution, but heat shrink tubes don't have any structuires to it and it wouldn't quite fit the the rest of the tool. Thanks to the research of my Patreons and channel members, they have found very special heat shrink tubes that have a structure in it. I really liked it as it almost looked exactly the same like the original handle.
    After all it was a very intense and time consuming project. I've done so many hours of research on this one and I had to learn new skills. I'm very happy how it turned out.
    I hope you like my work and the video.

      Can we just appreciate the incredible quality of the images in this? Especially the close ups. You can really see some time and money has been invested to get this sharp an image. Thank you.

    2. Matt McDonough

      This is amazing work, as usual for you! Why do you make all the bolts by hand on the lathe? Other than to show off your crazy mad machinist skills, is there is any other reason?

      Who ever invented the lathe machine is a genius

      All is extraordinary. ...except the handle. Even if that was how it was originally it just looks cheap. Whether shrink tubing is cheap or not.

      Awesome, a thing from the time we brits actually made something. Quite badly judging by the castings, it worked just didn't look very eye catching but what do you expect, a Gucci Hand cranked hammer drill..... function over form. Got to admire your talents though, superb job every time.

      It always amazes me when I watch these videos at how complicated some of these things are period from the outside it looks like 2 or 3 pieces like the gas lamp Yeah looked to be. And then when he takes the cover off it's a million pieces that he knows how to put back together!

      It’s not really restoring if you are just going to make new parts but the video itself was good

      Do you do research on all the things you restore or just go with the flow?
