Say what you want about Black & Decker, but they have been around a long-ass time — 100 years, to be precise. Their Centennial Sweepstakes has two months with free combo kits, tools, and gear left to go. It’s funny; you don’t really think about Black & Decker as being that old but if you look around you’ll find tools that are older than your grandparents stuffed in drawers and covered with dust.
I have a Black & Decker screwdriver I got from my old man that he in turn got from his father. It’s spent the last 60 years opening paint. Tools wind up pulling some strange duties over the years and you never know what’s going to be with you for 50 years. Sometimes it’s the strangest stuff. We’ve got a drill at Chuck’s shop (it’s not Black and Orange) that’s been filling in on doorstop duty for the last few years, but it’s still around.
If we haven’t said it before, happy birthday Black & Decker: You’ve been drilling, cutting, prying, pounding, marking and sanding for 100 years. Whatever else that can be said both good and bad — that alone is worthy of a tip-o-the-cap.
