Ifthat were any other brand it would have powered it's way free.Its not the brand it is the respect for the tool. The bit is stuck and still holding the trigger just to watch it smoke. I just dont get it. Now I want to take it apart and put in new brushes.
I am kind of old school. He who dies with the most tools wins.:laughing:
Black and Decker was always the home owner series for DeWalt in years past. I know they made hedge trimmers in 1969 because I used to operate them every Saturday morning. They also made electric mowers and cheap powertools back then. I spent $12 for a 1/4" VSR drill in 1970 and it still lives at my mothers house today, along with a bunch of other B&D tools my nephews have tried to kill over the years.Black and Decker USED to be a very good brand 25-30 yrs ago. Then they started making hedge trimmers, electric lawn mowers and the infamous orange series of drills. Too bad, times change. Makita got real good at that time and I have used them ever since.
No, I think that’s for a whole different chapter… a sorted story… the end result of which is the reason that for twenty years now we have had B&D and DeWalt instead of B&D and B&D Industrial… Brand separation."ya forgot to mention DeWalt was owned or still is(?) by B&D
