    You can buy a new one for 50-100 bucks more with warranty. Google it.

      Agree it is to old and ill bet its heavier than ****. I would probably stay away as previously stated you could get a Jancey or Hougan used on eBay and get a better drill. Also for a little more a new one with warranty. It looks to me like a BUX stand with a porter cable core drill attached it has a regular chuck instead of an annular cutter chuck. I would think you would want to use Hougan bits instead.

        Paid around $200-$250 for a BUX with a break-your-****ed-arm-&-both-legs if it binds ancient Milwaukee drill with an 18N Jacobs Superchuck. Best money I spent except for maybe a TE72 Hilti hammer drill for $75. The downside is that the pair are heavy...very heavy. For the price this one is offered at, I'd look elsewhere...especially if you are thinking of using annular cutter bits.

          Thanks guys. Yep. If I need a drill like this it will most certainly be using annular cutters. Didn't even think about the chuck being compatible.

          Move along now, nothing to see here...

            Elvis I recommend finding a used Jancey slugger while you still can. Jancey was purchased by Fein but I have always had great luck with the old Jancey products my first one is still drilling like the day I got it and the weight isn't the lightest but its manageable. Just my 2cents
