Rockwell Model 70 Drill.




1969. Rockwell introduces the first double-insulated 1/4" drill selling for less than $10. One speed, one direction. Probably the only drill ever available in avocado, though I'd prefer harvest gold. The double insulated construction eliminated the need for a ground lug, which everyone broke off anyways.

Below is a salesman's sample with clear housing sold on ebay (2008). Now that's different!
