H. Channon post drill

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. So about a week and a half ago I acquired this post drill. All seized up and covered in dust like it had sat in a barn untouched for 75 years. With some penetrating oil, a little heat from a small torch, and a wooden mallet I was able to completely disassemble it. I sand blasted it and gave it a nice gloss coat of hunter green and black. I can't for the life of me figure out any info (history) on the brand though, except that for a while, H. CHANNON may have been partial owners of McMaster Carr. I also didn't notice until today when I was painting the lettering black that it says CHIGAGO instead of CHICAGO. Does anyone here know anything about this brand? I made a set of drill bits at work by drilling out some half inch stock and red loctiting drill bits into their new half inch shanks so I can use the original chuck. Drilling holes with these post drills is really satisfying. Thanks for looking and any help. God bless, Keith
