Hi Terry I like that one very much and it says it is compatable with with Dremel which means that all my tools will fit it. I am going to order one of those and if any body wants my old battery gutless Lidle one,, PM me,, and you can have it for the postage cost.
Wolf is a name I remember from years ago and they made prity good drills in those days. Not heard of them for years.

Wolf is part of Black and Decker John. They still make all sorts of power tools.

There is also Wolff. Not sure if there is a connection.

O is it Brian............I am not enammered with black and decker these days I get the idea that this Wolf tool is probably a China import with their name stuck on it. Like many other products are these days. One never knows do you.
They other week we ordered a bottle of Coke with our Fish and Chips and it said on the lable, Bottled in Vietnam.

You're probaby right. I don't buy B & D any more. Maybe Bosch but more than likely Makita.

Had a Wolf bench grinder at work 20 odd years ago that was proper Wolf. It was one of the best I've ever used. Also a Wolf masonry drill, very rugged. Bit different to today's offerings.

I believe DeWalt is also Black & Decker.

That Wolf model drill is the same essentially as one I bought from Aldi about 2 years ago, same pack with flex drive, bench support and all accessories.. it is a very decent model and well worth the money, I bought it mainly because it had the flex drive shaft (great for cutting track).
