Bailey,s post drill


Recommended Posts

Howdy folks. i recently acquired a Bailey's No.4 post drill. I am researching to find pics of one to see what the missing pieces look like. The hand crank is missing and the feed actuator arm is broken top and bottom. The cam is still there so i can imagine what the arm looks like to repair it. the MFGis unmistakeable it is clearly marked "Bailey's No. 4" then either "II & B Co." or "LL",in lower case, "& B Co.". I have all of the gears and spindles free except for the feed, the acme thread is frozen solid, I'm still working on getting that free. Any information or photos or ideas to search would be greatly apperciated.
I did find a "Bailey's No. 5" which was designed to run on a line shaft.
Thanks again for any information.
