Re: Countersinking with hand drill?
Same with me, Dave. My folks were living across the country from my grand parents when he died. All of grand dad's tools were left in his basement workshop when my grandmother sold the house. Priceless jewels today but back then, early 60s, they probably weren't worth much.
One thing he had that always fascinated me was a bench mounted grinder. It had a crank and a big flywheel. You started cranking and got it up to speed then held the work against the stone and kept cranking while you ground away. I used to like to see how fast I could get that wheel to spin.
