I Forge Iron

Champion Blower and Forge model 98 Restored.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

On a recent picking adventure to a friends house I was gifted this post drill. At the time it was not functional as the guide pin for the spindle and retraction knob were missing. I spent a few days braking it down and cleaning it up. It is now back to full functionality. I love it, single speed, variable rate of feed, works quite well on metal. It does not generate the heat you can develop with electric drills. The table support clamp bracket was broken, which seems to have been a common problem. Someone had tried to weld it many years ago but it did not take. I ground all the welding mess off and brazed it which seems to be holding. I am going to use it for countersinking mostly, so I do not think I will be adjusting the table much. It was a fun project and has been a useful tool already. Heck I reworked the post in the center of my shop so I could have a good place to mount it.

Have a great day,
