    You may not like his language, but I find it interesting.
    Here's his teardown of a Dewalt drill.

    Very interesting videos. I just wasted a couple hours watching a guy take apart and assemble a drill. I laughed out loud a few times. Learned a lot. Powdered metal gears? Who knew. Total tool nerddom. Enjoyed it. Thanks for the link. As for the language, I thought it was totally appropriate. This is language of the shop.

    New armature arrived this morning....Fitted it into the drill and it's working again just like new.
    The downside is that while fitting it back together I dropped a screw on the floor bent down to pick it up and put my back out.
