"Cordless" Drill

Behold the Goodell-Pratt Hand and Breast Drill: 2½ pounds of state-of-the-art "cordless" technology circa 1896. Though it can't match the speed of today's cordless drills—its steel chuck spins four times for each turn of the big hand gear—it still works 110 years later. That's a feat no modern cordless is likely to equal.
