Product Description

There was a time when everything was made to a higher standard of Design and workmanship and that includes tools. This is is a Vintage 1940's Electric Thor Speedway 201j drill This one is in good display condition. It was made by the Speedway Manufacturing Company of Chicago, Illinois and is one of the more sleek drills of its size. It is 3/8", 115 ac/dc, 2 amps. Back in the era right after WWII America went into the Space age with the government emphasis on space exploration and you can see that emphasis in the design of everything from Automobiles to this electric drill which looks more like a buck rogers Ray gun than a drill. This was when quality mattered and that is why this thing is still running today. This particular unit is in display condition and did run up until about a week ago, could possibly still run again, I'll work on it to see if I can get it to go or you just buy it as is..... Whether you add it to your collection, use it for display and/or place it back in service. It is tight but one missing screw could be added. This model is increasingly more difficult to find. It measures 2-1/2"x5"x10" and weighs 6 pounds. this tool is getting rarer and rarer as time goes so you might want to get on this one now before it's gone. I only get items like this every so often so don't delay buy it today! Standard priority shipping rate for priority mail in the US and international first class overseas.
