Cincinnati Bickford Mystery Drill Press

Recommended Posts

Hello! I work for a museum and there's a building that I'm trying to clean out that has a lot of random, accumulated tools. Some were donated, while others were just sort of brought in to use on a project and left behind. There's a huge drill press that I'm hoping to donate to a different organization, but I need a little more information on how old it is and if it's a specific model. I've gotten so far as it's a Cincinnati Bickford, but am having trouble digging up anything more about it.

Cincinnati -Bickford , under that particular name, was making drill presses from 1909-1955. Go to the Vintage Machinery website ( not sure if I can post a link), using the name with a dot org to get there. Go to the manufacturers index and there is a bit more history of the company. That might aim you in the right direction.
