  1. Hello everybody today I acquired this huge post drill hand crank in very good shape very little slop and play in the spindle the only thing is it seems to be missing any kind of mechanism to turn the feed to lower it down as your Drilling not a big deal I just I would appreciate if somebody would have pictures of what it should look like so I can make something work for it did excellent drill and all their minus this part
  2. New anvil . But not as I hoped

    In not new to this . But you have to understand that I ground the face because of all of the massive pitting from miss use with a chisel at some point. Now I admit that now where it's at I realize that I more than likely shouldn't have done that. But Imy more than willing to work on it to repair my mistakes
  3. New anvil . But not as I hoped

    It does have a steel free so I can tell by the spark difference between the face and the base that is cast iron but I don't know I looked into getting some hard surfacing rodds would that work to build up just a little bit I appreciate any advice on this thank you
  4. New anvil . But not as I hoped

  5. New anvil . But not as I hoped

    Ahh I'll back away from the grinder Didn't take much off at all but sitll
  6. Well tilted says it . Picked up a anvil the other day. Has not bad rebound. The face has been beat up really bad by chisels so I figured no big deal as people can be hard on stuff. Well upon future inspection while I was grinding away the pitting. I realized that the face is extremely soft and dents very very easily looks like I just bought a hundred and thirty five pound piece of cast iron

  12. After 10 years of stuff piling up going to be a pain to clean her out but I'll get it done within the next week or so before Christmas hopefully have shop set up sometime after Christmas its It's plenty tall enough for a shop but she's got a slight lean into her for probably only being 75 or 80 years old so might have to deal with that but other than that she's good
