Boynton and Plummer drill

Postby UK-Cub » Fri Oct 02, 2015 2:50 pm

Went to a machinery auction here in UK last Saturday and purchased what turned out to be a Boynton & Plummer No 9 drill on a maiden bid of £2 that's about USD3

Two or three projects down the line I hope to have it cleaned, painted and decorating the garage.

I'll post a final picture.

I love the old tools, I have my grandfathers, I can still remember him using it, he called it a "post drill". I even have a large assortment of bits for it.

Looking forward to "the after" pictures,

Great find.

Like David, we had a post drill and quite a number of bits. Worked, but really slow.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Stripped
Cleaned
Painted
Mounted

Unfortunately not a lot of natural light just inside the garage door and it never gets too light this far north in December.

I hadn't intended to paint it, but on stripping / cleaning it I discovered lead had been used to fill holes / defects particularly on the 'flywheel', and an oiled finish didn't work.

As a consequence I decided to paint it in Brunswick green with the letters picked out in red, a colour scheme previously used on some park bench* ends.

(As this is a predominantly US site and as one who traveled extensively there on business trips I'm never sure on what 'you' call things hope you understand *)

Why do I get the feeling the lettering in red took a lot longer than all the other painting. It looks great, I think a very appropriate combination.

Don't be concerned over translating English, we can usually figure it out. For that matter different regions and areas around the US will call the same thing by different names. As long as someone realizes that just because dad and grandpa called it a splockalator doesn't mean someone in Iowa calling it a weaselgenator is wrong. The "fun" comes in when the guy in Iowa also has something they call a splockalator but it is something totally different. Pictures clear up things like this real fast.

Now I have to tell you my "English translation story". Several years I worked for a company that had an Australian subsidiary and I went there with a group to help them install some of our equipment. We would work in larger stores after they closed for the night. I arrived at one store shortly before closing and introduced myself and the guys with me to the manager (they knew we were coming and what was happening). It had been a long car ride there and I asked where the rest room was. This very polite and friendly store manager got the most incredulous confused look on her face. As it turns out a rest room in Australia is a room dedicated for mothers to change their babies nappy (that's a diaper in the US, which is also why you may want to rethink asking for extra napkins in a restaurant in Australia :shock: ) She eventually figured out I needed the water closet or WC. I never asked for a rest room again the whole trip. :lol:

(And yes the water does swirl the other way around :D )

David,

Looks like you have another project. :) :) And I know it will turn out as well as this one has.

Thank you for the compliments, much appreciated.

I bought a sewing machine treddle and a hand operated bench drill (first time I'd seen one since I did 'metal work' at secondary school in 1959) and combined them with bicycle and lawn mower parts...........watch for a posting......

Question, I have to downsize photos, how do I post a video on here?

:help:

........

I think for the video you have to host it somewhere else like youtube and then link to it. I've never added a video but since I'm typing this I just noticed :oops: the "youtube" button at the end of the row of buttons above (in the post a reply window) I bet that it's involved somehow. :D :lol:

Thanks Scrivet,

Oh dear, deeper and deeper into the mysteries of the interweb, I'll pursue it; cross your fingers.

By the by I'll post better outside photos of this drill - when it stops raining!
