Not mine but the same as mine, has rotation stop for use with SDS chisels which is great for chopping holes in walls for sockets etc.
Oh, it'll put holes in steel reinforced lintels as well (BTW, 'Rebar' is a particular type of steel reinforcing, most lintels have plain old drawn steel wire in 'em).
It's an internet picture as an example.... Mine has the better charger with the fan (I know it's got the fan, as does everyone within 50 metres) but you're right with the vintage, batteries are 'OK' but not great for their age.bhr200, 3 mode hammer drill from the early 2000's 2Ah battery's fail early & thats the cheaper charger with no fan
mine about had it but will still do 12mm x though a floor & punch the steel out too
its refused to do a 50mm core though the same floor I'm having a go with 2kg 110v on monday
I've a shiny 18v dewalt xr with 5ah's to replace it & shiny combo drill & impact driver, I will take 'em to work when I get shiny new dewalt box & finshed working away & leaving stuff locked in cupboard
You could take the easy option and glue a timber batten across the wall (on sound plaster) using one of the modern no nails type instant grab adhesives and then fix your pole brackets to that. As long as the plaster is sound and the curtains aren't of stately home drapes weight....
Careful there our local builder is Pearce and Son, who have their granddaughter/daughter working as an apprentice, she does all the heavy lifting, so it could be get a woman in.This is all a rather long winded way of saying I'm afraid Mr memory,
You will have to get a man in.
No Nails is great. The problem comes when the No Nails is stronger than the surface(s) you’re applying it to. The goo will hold any amount of weight, Will the plaster/board behind it?Will 'No Nails' be sufficient. - I didn't think it would be strong enough to hang curtains from?

It‘s like when you hang a heavy framed mirror and put in two good fixings of appropriate design for the wall in question and when you turn your back your Mrs puts some fine picture hanging wire on it and hangs the mirror.
Fast forward to 0300 when the wire that’s been quietly stretching finally gives out. You then get to sweep up half a ton of very fine antique mirror glass shards, about 45,000 of them as it’s not safety glass. You can keep this up for years.
As a bonus, you get to lift ALL the laminate flooring as the mirror took a great gouge out of the last but one board which of course you laid such that the tongue and groove type joints start at the OTHER end of the room. Don’t forget to remove the skirting board on all sides, all the way down as you installed that AFTER you’d laid the floor to hide the fixing tacks and make a neat job. Then remember you didn’t need to take the skirting off the last wall as you didn’t need to lift the last board.
Put it all back together. Buy new skirting because it all split because you did the job properly with screws and No Nails, loads of it, Re plaster, re paint, try and ignore the fact the replaced board is a different shade as it’s not sun bleached like all the others.
Get a divorce.
