DRILL-LIT (0805) – NZD$1,800

I always wanted to turn an antique hand operated drill into a lamp (weird, I know), and we finally found a good one on a farm in Omanawa, Bay of Plenty (New Zealand). Originally made in Melbourne Australia by the Dawn Manufacturing Company, which was founded in 1917, this No. 600 drill was complete with faded paint, rust, and years of caked on oil. Perfect! From there we painstakingly cleaned it, clear coated that lovely old patina and added some stainless steel and kauri wood for a nice modern contrast. Finally we added new electrics including custom cord, inline dimmer, and a vintage Edison bulb to complete the conversion. A cool and useful piece of industrial history for your home or business!
