Antique Hand Cranked Hammer Drill - Restoration
- Published on Dec 18, 2020 veröffentlicht
- 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 @HandToolRescue 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.

I payed a lot of attention on the lighting when filming this video and also the quality of the sound to create an ASMR style video.
If you have any questions about the process, machines i'm using or other stuff, just ask me in the comments. I read them all and i try to reply as soon as possible.
Sorry for my bad english, it's not my language. I try my best to improve my technical english.

I gotta admit, there’s always an anxiety filled moment at the end when I feel like you’re not going to test it out and you never disappoint
Thats where other restoration channels sometimes fail
I felt the same 😆
What I am always genuinely surprised by…is how relaxing the videos are! they’re like ASMR but better and REAL 😂
So true. 😄
So cool to see you using some things that you restored in the past to help restore new items! Amazing restoration as always!

I also like it bro, as always
Thanks, I'm glad you like it :-)
WOW !! Za każdym razem oglądając twoje filmy, jestem pełna podziwu dla majstersztyku i precyzji. Ale przede wszystkim, że potrafisz to potem poskładać na nowo. Świetna robota!!
На три вещи можно бесконечно смотреть в жизни - Как течет вода, как горит огонь и как "моя механика" реставрирует казалось бы "мертвые" вещи! Великолепная работа!
Не мёртвые вещи, а уже практически обглоданные кости, я бы так сказал.
Потрясающая работа! Сколько сил было вложено! Приятно было смотреть
Hey, I just wanted to say I love your videos. You are very talented and watching you fix old stuff is somehow really satisfying and calming. Keep up the great work!
There's no other restoration channel on Clip-Share that I've found that's as good as yours. You set the bar sir.
I like him too Chris
He's amazing, but also check out @HandToolRescue, his Canadian skill twin!
@campusman1957 who? Lol
yes there is
Glad you like it!
Just found this channel, such beautiful precision in your work. So relaxing to watch and so satisfying to see the product fully restored at the end.
It always seems to me that you significantly improve on the original casting or machining in your restorations - beautifully done!
Изумительная по качеству и красоте работа! БРАВО Мастеру! 😍😍😍
I have tried to watch other restoration channels that come up in my recommended, and it's just not the same. The sounds and enjoyment from your videos are unparalleled in my brain. Definitely, my favorite restoration type channel.
I really admire your perfectionism. Unbelievable how you turn things that are trash in the eyes of most people into the original, no a far better, optimized state. I've watched every video of yours with joy!
All I want for Christmas is to watch My Mechanics!
Здоровья и Счастья вам и вашим близким Незнакомцы листающие комментарии 🤲🏻💗
Как так можно делать! Я просто в восторге, от качества исполнения восстановления перфоратора!
Never gets old to see such fine attention to detail and extraordinary craftsmanship on these restorations!
Also, looking at the shape of this device... The stock, that pistol grip, the overall shape...
Hmm... Yes, this is _clearly_ a "hole rifle". It fires holes! LOL
Невозможно оторваться от видео. Приятно наблюдать за работой мастера, который любит свое ремесло!
I always enjoy watching you put items back together, making them better than they originally were.
Как же мне нравится смотреть когда восстанавливают старую вещь.И от куда вы только знаете что к чему подходит.ВЫ огромный молодец и руки золотые.Похожая вещь была у моего отца в его огромном столе.Походу он любил собирать старинные инструменты.👍
Полчаса эстетического удовольствия! С какой любовью всё сделано! Просто нет слов.
The amount of tools you’ve got is amazing! Like the barrel with sand at 6:40, amazing!
He stated that those were porcelain stones, not sand
Операторская работа просто вышка, как будто снято сразу со спецэффектами!!!!
Beautiful! The cranking handle assembly on its own was a complete work of art!
I love the details you include in the video description. Very interesting to learn about where you get your items and the processes you use! 💜
Genial , parabéns melhor restauração já vista.
I love one aspect of your videos beyond the repairs: your editing. That's part of what makes them so enjoyable, the way you show the progression of time without just accelerating the video is wonderful.
This is why I watch these videos and basically no one elses. Hate sped up footage.
Wow, thank you!
Sensacional esta de parabéns você é incrível.
The craftsmanship and precision is absolutely amazing!
Glad to hear that, thank you very much
I love watching your restorations. Particularly when you have to fabricate parts such as nuts and screws etc. Now I know how they are made. Very educational.
Trabalho espetacular e perfeito.
Золотые руки и светлая голова, волшебство от инженера👍👍👍
I think this has to be one of your best restorations yet. Absolutely spectacular. I stand (okay, I sit) in awe of your ability to restore these things.
Искусство какое-то, а не реставрация! 👍👍👍
From the disassembling, sandblasting, remaking bits, bluing, to the reassemble. Your work is beautiful, and watching from beginning to ending is relaxing to, because I know when you finish the results are amazing. 🤩
My first thought once I saw this hammer drill being disassembled was "NO WAY HE IS GOING TO ASSEMBLE IT BACK."
Amazing restoration, unbelievable!
Good job indeed.
Im addicted to your restoration videos you r very very good at this
Приятно смотреть на мастера своего дела.
You are an amazing machinist. I loved watching the process of machining new parts to replace missing and damaged parts. The care you took to even smooth out casting defects is amazing. Looking forward to seeing more of your videos.
Yea most creators who restore would stop there or restore it as best as they could with rust remover.
Really, really good work! Watching you restoring, is like listening to a symphony.
Another beautiful restoration! These are just the best.
Так. Не удержался и решил написать комментарий.
На это просто очень приятно смотреть и слушать. Прям успокаивает нервы 😊😌😌😌😌😌
This was truly magnificent to watch. I am humbled and blown away by the mastery of craftsmanship which I see here. Inspirational in every way.
Pls if u have time one day can u explain how the blue liquid enter full metal turn all black not just outside. Pls thanks uu
Great work! Spectacular, interesting to watch the action! How long did it take to restore ?? I recommend everyone to watch!!!!
It's always so satisfying to see you use tools you previously fixed. It's like watching a TV show and saying "I remember that character!"
It's a nice doubling up of the channel's theme. The tools haven't just been restored to looking nice. They've been restored to *usefulness*, and get *used*
Something pleasant about it
Thanks, I'm glad you like it :-)
Handle restoration was my favorite part. Absolutely perfect. Immensely satisfying.
One of my favourite! I think this is the third time now for me. Always amazing work!
@my mechanics looking forward to the next one!
Wow, thank you!
I love when I see him using tools that I've already watched him restore like the press and the oil can. Makes it even better that they are being used. Gosh I love this guy's work
Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for your support 🙌🏻👍🏻🙌🏻
Absolute perfection... 🤤🤤🤤🤤 And I LOVE to see you use previously restored tools 👏👏👏
Had no idea hammer drills were that old, that's crazy. Great work.
Glad you like it :-)
I have watched hundreds of Clip-Share videos and this one is the closest to perfection I have ever seen. Beautifully filmed, no annoying music and sampled handclaps, just calm, clear poetic craftsmanship. I totally agree with Paul McKenzie's comment about it being art. Even if I wasn't interested in restoration, I would still love the video. What a talent!
i agree with you @Mark Binner
@sky blue Why would I do any of that? Plus it's all misspelled.
If you like this you should check out broxh on twitch, he does some great work
What a wonderful restoration! Honestly, you turn things into BETTER than theyw ere even when brand new!👏🏻👏🏻
Thank you! 😊
Awesome work! Incredible craftsmanship
Thank you :-)
I love the way you work. You're so talented. And the best part of the video is that you showed us how they work. Thanks for sharing this video with us.
Félicitations pour ta chaîne, c’est incroyable de voir un Suisse faire autant de vues! T’es vidéos sont incroyables. Magnifique travail. J’adore!
I love how you restore things its gorgeous 😍
I don’t know how I missed this exemplary restoration, but I’m convinced you could take a bucket full of iron shavings, rocks, and dirt, and turn it into a masterpiece. MAGNIFICENT!!
EWl trabajo es espectacular y el acabado magnífico. Lo que me gustaría es que esplicara más los productos que aplica. Por lo demás magnífico.
Очень хорошо зделана работа!
I remember both my grandfather and father talking about using these when they were in the trades ..now we got cordless hammer drills lol thank god! Great work!
His restoration work is perfect down to the last detail. A true craftsman and professional. My greetings!
Thank you very much!
I am amazed at how well it worked! One fascinating thing I am discovering about watching your videos, is how incredibly different the engineering can be with different countries of origin.
Thank you very much!
One of the most complicated restorations yet, and perfectly done. I have watched a few other “restoration” channels and none are on this level of skill. You’re a badass Mr My Mechanics.
Trabalho magnífico de um excelente restaurador que devolveu a vida a uma ferramenta já condenada pelo tempo
Очень интересно, отличная работа!
Wow - awesome as always. Magnificent.
Can't help feeling it is better made now than it was when it came from the factory. Well, certainly the cleaned up casting marks and finer surfaces, but I'm referring to the overall build quality, how the pieces fit together, and the attention to oxidation protection. Well done.
Usually I tell people “you do good work”. Well you do amazing work! I’ve build some amazing things but I don’t have the patience that you do for the tedious details. Keep the vids comin!
Glad to hear that, thank you very much!
Great job again. This channel rocks. Super addicting.
If my mechanics had his own tool line, with his level of craftsmanship, I would want to gather a set! This guy not only has to know all of the wood and metal working, but he learns the way every single new mechanism works. Down to the point that he understands which parts need to be exactly which size. Especially when he has to completely make a new part of it. I love when he shows an old beat up part, and then the next scene says "I make a new one" and that's it. It makes me laugh to myself! Keep up the good work, friend!
The cinematography is just as masterful as the craftsmanship 🎥✨
@my mechanics Anytime! Your videos are very therapeutic. I'm sure you get that a lot 😊Subscribed!
Nice to hear that, thanks :-)
What an amazing job. I’ve never seen one of these in working condition. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely amazing! Your skills are incredible
Great work on a vintage tool! 😁👍🛠️
Впервые вижу перфоратор такого типа . Автору респект 👍
Yours is the ONLY restoration channel on Clip-Share that truly takes this subject seriously. Others just take it apart, clean it, and paint it with rattle can. It only gets them 85% of the way done.
You Sir, get the other 15% or more my hat off to your quality of work. You've earned every single one of your subscribers
Очень крутое преображение, молодец!👍
Yo can u explain how he made those items black from the outside in with that blue liquid? How did it penetrate the metal and made all turn black inside??
Wow looks great! And that is WAY more effective than I thought it’d be!
Awesome Tool - Awesome restoration.
Great choice of the colors as well - perfect job ;)
Thank you very much!
I bet this guys collection of perfect antique hand and power tools is awesome. He should showcase a museum video👍
Насколько уникальны и безграничны человеческие мысль и умения! Восхищён вашими работами, мастер!
Восхещен тем кто это придумал и сделал.
И у мастера руки золотые.
@Irina Gev 123 уже
Ура я не один здесь русский!
i do love it when he uses the tools he restorated in previous videos 👍🏻
У тебя руки из нужного места растут супер!!!
Восхищаюсь способности ума разобрать конструкцию! и работы по восстановлению !!
This piece is beautiful, you did amazing work. My fav part to watch is the blueing, it's like painting with a time delay.
Unfortunately I can only like every video once ... I would give 1000 likes at least ... excellent work! Thanks for sharing it with us.
Love love love the extreme close-up shots. You've really grown as a video producer.
Thank you very much
Жвачка для мозга! Золотые руки 👍🏼
Restoring those tools, really shows the craftmanship we had in the past. Great job.
Impressive. Been involved in construction almost a half century and never seen this tool (or the likes of it) in that time. Not the manual version.
Really like that parts tumbler and how it came to fruition. How you stick as close to original design as possible but are willing to improve upon it, if necessity dictates, garners my admiration. In this vid I got to see an earlier restore put to task, the arbor press. These are tools that were meant to be used, and use them you do. I find that immensely gratifying and impressive.
How someone, anyone, handles and treats a tool is a testament to their character, whether admiring/respecting an old tool or doing the same with the lastest gadget/tool. 🤘👍✌️🤛
Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it :-)
Tolle Arbeit! Alles absolut präzise bearbeitet, restauriert und neu angefertigt!
Lob & Anerkennung!
Und dabei immer saubere Hände/Finger ...
Ich bin begeistert! Thanks!
You sir, have some amazing skills. Absolute perfection. Top job.
I like this new style of editing. Those close-ups looks crisp makes me appreciate the restoration even more! Great job on the restoration and video!
This looked incredibly painful to do. Handled like a champ
Parabéns ficou perfeito
Very cool. Impressive workmanship.
I thought that I was an engineer, but after watching your work, I realise that I'm not. Great job, I could watch all day
Buen trabajo 😎❤🇵🇪®️
The level of detail when it comes to restoring it still amaze me after all this time. You are becoming a legend!
Маленький совет, когда работаете центровочным сверлом, зажимать в сверлильный патрон его нужно так, что бы прорези распологались горизонтально. А этом случае стружка не будет застревать в сверле, и кончик не будет обламываться, особенно при сверлении нержавейки.
How is it possible for 23K people to dislike this video? The restoration was remarkable and his skills are incredible. Even the videography was superb. If this level of expertise doesn't impress you then nothing could.
Everything is amazing! Skills, tooling, filming. My guess is the tool became better than it was brand new!
Nice to hear that, thank you :-)
Einfach perfekt, was dir Hände dieses Mannes vollbringen. Auch das bedienen der Maschinen, welche Schrauben, Muttern, Stängel etc. zur Perfektion herstellt. Großartig! Möchte gerne wissen wie viel Stunden daran gearbeitet wurde….
