Hello Wiktor,
I received the drill yesterday and I was absolutely impressed. The attention to detail is incredible. The photos do not capture all the minute details. I have worked in the mold making trade my entire career and I truly appreciate
the time and diligence to make such a quality piece of work. I can see the passion that you have for these drills.
I still like to work in my wood shop as it takes me back to when I first started in the trade as a wood pattern maker and progressed to a model maker. Maybe that is why I appreciate older tools and the hand craftsmanship it took to make these items. This will definitely see some use.

Thanks Again!
Scott Schade



Pre-Orders


Some woodworkers and other potential users of hand drills and braces prefer a specific model or specific feature.

The best way to acquire the model you prefer is to pre-order a drill or a brace. Although the waiting time for your preferred item is quite long (36 to 39 weeks), this arrangement allows for specific selection for you and completion of my work at superior level.

To place an order, please select an item from the lists of specific products and send me an email with request. I will reply with description of the steps to complete pre-order. Also, please include your phone number and good time to call.
