I have still got an electric drill which was made by Bosch for Rawlplug.
I bought it new when I first went into business in Essex back in 1975.
Later moved away and got married, then went to work for someone else. It
has never had any work done on it, except for replacement of the chuck
and is so robust that when drilling floor joists with it I have actually
put that much pressure on it, I stopped the motor turning. There is no
hammer action on it which is why it doesn't get used these days.

Not kept so much, just not been seen for a while. I've got an idea
where it is.
I've got loads more useless stuff as well.
I've also got, in the process of reconditioning for sale I might add,
a DC04, a DC07, a Panasonic upright, two 110V Numatic 1000W cleaners,
an electrofusion machine, a brand new aqua vac industrial wet & dry 30
litre cleaner, a Toshiba Strata DK280 PBX and handsets and a 19" CRT
monitor, and that's just the stuff I can see!
I too have a bosch that I got for my birthday in 1980. It's a mains
powered two speed hammer drill and still works perfectly.
However I hardly ever use it as I use an SDS for masonary bits and a
cordless for everything else.
