Fund raising auction at the ROCS banquet in Ohio

Post by Watertender »

I am donating this Ruger drill for the fundraising auction at the ROCS banquet in Ohio in July. It originally belonged to Otto Zauner and his name is engraved on it. Otto was a gliding enthusiast and used his Ruger drill to build gliders. From the information I have been able to find he died in 2012 and was a B-26 Bomber flight instructor for the USAAF during WW2. The dril is exactly as I received it including drill bits in the handle. See everyone in Ohio!!

Some people sit on $.05 of knowledge like it is the treasure of Egypt. I will teach anyone $.10 worth just to prove a point...

Carl, this is truly awesome! You might consider writing what you know about the original owner and include this as provenance with the drill. I sure appreciate this donation to our Ohio ROCS display show fund. You add real "class" to our group of displayers
