Duh Moment

I figured out today that the Stanley hand drill has a couple of oiler holes. A drop of light oil has loosened up the mechanism completely.

I used a 3/8" Lee Valley brad point bit. These bits are excellent. A coat of bees wax and I was impressed with it's speed. For short runs of holes this is an excellent alternative to my cordless drill.
