Have you ever seen one of these?

Cleaning up my shop yesterday I realized I have a bunch of OLD tools some of which I don’t know what they were even made for and others that are just plain old and which I have never seen anywhere else.
Here’s a couple of shots of what must be one of the first battery operated collet tools ever made. It is marked ‘Japan’ on the bottom.

If you have any information about this tool I would love to hear from you!

Several years ago when I was doing a lot of work with a jig saw I used this guy to drill small starting holes for my saw blades. It is quite cool as the collets are small enough to hold a much smaller drill bit than just about any of my other tools.
