post drill from the blacksmith shop

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Mon Oct 22, 2012 8:36 pm

This was one of the items in it. A post mounted hand powered drill press. This is one of the fancier ones I have seen, including a mechanism to automatically advance the drill bit with each turn of the hand crank in adjustable mounts, and a separate foot that can be moved up and down. Most of them are part of the main unit, and fixed in position.

John:

I always enjoy the old tools whenever/wherever I get to see them. Ray has Pepere Albert's Press Drill that is easily over 100 years old. They are magnificent pieces. :!:

I hope some of these old pieces will find homes and not the scrap bin.....

Rudi, this farm has been in the same family for 3 generations, and Scrivet who bought it is a nephew. All the old tools and anything else reasonable will be saved.

I am glad that is going to happen. A legacy farm -- wonderful. Scrivet's will be the best home possible.

I probably have some drill bits that may fit the chuck. Measure the chuck diameter and if the drill bit is round with one side flattened off.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I have my grandfathers old post drill, it also has the "dog" to advance it as it turns. He put a pulley on it and put a motor on it at some point. I remember he used it quite often. I have a big coffee can full of drill bits for it as well. One day it will be cleaned up and mounted on my shop wall, if nothing else, to bring back memories of grandpa tinkering with it. :wink:

Nice find,
David

My dad also has one of those David, pretty heavy made as I remember and it's still mounted in the garage. Younger brother and I have cranked that thing enough to go around the world without even having a bit in it.
It always fascinated me watching all that rigging work especially the latch on top that advanced the drill bit. A good hard spin and it would go on and on by itself.
I'll let Grayson give it a whirll the next time we're on the farm. :lol:

Slightly off topic, but here is one I have that belonged to my Great Grandfather. He was a wheel wright, and he and his brother built wagons for people traveling to the California gold rush. The two of them built 50 wagons for the gold rush in one year. which for 2 men to do was quite an accomplishment, because it involved cutting the trees, sawing out the lumber, etc. Below is a picture of their post drill which I have along with some of their old tools. Note how basic this one is, the wheel lowers the bit and the crank on top turns the shaft. No gears, no flywheel, no advance, just the basics.
