The problem seems to be a combination of the shape of the crank wheel or inconsistency of the depth of the teeth (only the teeth on one side appear to jam), combined with too much play along the drive shaft axis (the gears slide across each other too much). I read on another forum that there may have been a bad run of these tools, and I guess I was an unlucky winner. But the manufacturing defects surely don't give me much confidence.
I recently visited an Ace Hardware in Malaysia of all places and discovered a Stanley-branded double-pinion hand drill. It had significantly less play along the driving axis. I never purchased it, though, so maybe it would have become unusable, too. Nevertheless, I would recommend buying a double-pinion drill, as they're not much more money but seem to have better tolerances, almost by necessity. If a double-pinion drill had as much play along the drive axis as my single-pinion Schroeder, the top gear might not engage at all.
The Stanley-branded drill looked exactly like the 3/4" Schroeder hand drill. The 3/4" Schroeder is widely marketed as a single-pinion drill, but I'm fairly certain that's an error in the marketing literature from the OEM, unless I'm misunderstanding what pinion means. The 3/4" must be double-pinion. Heck, in some pictures you can even see the two pinions.
I'm also convinced that many of these hand drills, including Schroeder, Malaysian-region Stanley, and some others, are the exact same design, perhaps even being sourced from the same supplier. The only differences appear to be in the type of handle attached to the cranking wheel--plastic or wood.
This drill is light weight (much lighter than a power drill), drilled the holes quickly, and I didn't need to look for an extension cord or outlet to plug it into. And I didn't have to worry about a battery needing charging. I really like just being able to put a bit into it and start drilling immediately. And I was using it over my head so the light weight was much easier on my hands and arms.
I will probably buy the same brand drill again only a larger one for the bigger jobs.
