I am looking for a hand tool that is no longer available from Rawl.
It was a hand drill for masonry, that you hit with a hammer, turn, and hit
again, It had replaceable tips and made a hole for a 3/16 plastic or fiber
It was a rawl no.14 tool.
any ideas where to find or if something similar is made today?
do a google search for "rockclimbing hand drill" I suspect no.14 is the bit
size not the model number of the drill. You may also try alt.rockclimbing
or something like that. Those rockclimbers sure pay alot for their gear.
What you describe sounds like a "Star Drill." This is like a chisel which
has a crossed point, and is driven with a (Hand Drilling) hammer. Most do
not have replaceable tips, but they can be resharpened with a file. Many
hardware stores still stock these, even though most masonry drilling is now
done using power tools - drills, hammer-drills, or rotary-hammers. Brands
would probably include Enderes, Dasco, Baltimore, Mayhew, and many more...
