That's spooky as I found the exact same drill amongst the junk a couple of days ago ! My one looks ok apart from the cable which is entirely shot to bits, I'll just swap it for a heftyish lead rescued from some dead appliance, the sheath bit will be gaffa tape thoThis B&D drill and some odd bits came my way last week.

The odd attachment is a Hammer Drill attachment.
It is not a bad attachment. But back then B&D Hammer drills were very costly for a DIY'er.

The drill was tested and the cable was good, but the sheeth was shot.

A raid of the spares pile had me a decent cable sheeth and a switch.
All but the switch was swoped over.

The sander attachment was almost ok.
But the rubber shocks were stifff and cracking. Another spare piile raid had some decent replacements.

All done and tested.
The saw attachment is in bits beeing cleaned.
Time ran out and beer ran in yesterday.
Had similar before with rather lighter axles - bit of warmth from a blow torch expands the tube enough to make them slide out rather more easily - and similar to get 'em back in.Replaced the rear wheel bearings on my Jeep Cherokee today
It's a Dana 35 axle and the bearings were a complete PITA to remove. Much abuse with the slide hammer and they weren't budging
Mr die Grinder came out to play and that sorted them
Knocked up a drift to get the new ones in, I'm guessing this is some sort of stainless as it's been sat in my junk box for ages and no sign of it rusting. Had to turn it down from 66mm to 57mm so made a few chips
Put a new floor into the trailer acquired from @8ob.

Then had a phone call from a mate who was sending over a digger to sort out the drainage in the old tennis court. Didn't trust the bags to survive the trip from the vegetable garden through the wood so trailer was put immediately to work taking a few tonnes of clean stone down to the tennis court. Mild winching was involved to get back out because bluebells are damn slippery!
Then the wood was treated to a thick coat of finest proper creosote.

You didn't expect me to?You kept the loops of chain tie downs then Ed
You could try sticking one in the freezer overnight, I've heard of machining rubber frozen but I assume you need liquid nitrogen temperatures to make it work, can't hurt to try though. Having said that, it's probably more trouble than it's worth, grinding looks like it's worked well.A few more to do so any alternative material removal ideas welcome!
