Dormeyer electric drill
Years ago, I found a metal box designed to hold a Dormeyer drill kit, which subsequently became the subject for a 2013 Progress is Fine post. Yesterday, whilst out on a motorcycle ride, I stopped at a yard sale and found the very drill it was meant to hold! I snapped it up for $5, and drill and case are now reunited.
Nicely made. Notice the lip at the bottom of the trigger. This is the trigger lock. You pull in the trigger and move it down, so that the lip locks in the opening for the trigger. Clever design.
From the badge, it appears that it was a "Matched Craft" brand. Kind of a lame name. For domestic use only!
