Demolition company in Queens finds vintage, cordless drill on job

Waste Removal

Made by Goodell/Pratt Company – Greenfield, Mass. USA. Patented August 13, 1895

This drill might not use power, but it still rules.

I found this drill about 10 years ago when my crew and I were doing a full interior demolition of a house in Redhook, Brooklyn. It was just lying around in an old tool room, among other tools and garbage. I saved this drill because it’s over 100 years old — from 1895! But I also like to joke with my friends and customers about it, and ask, “Want to buy a cordless drill?!” Technology sure has come a long way!
