Default Belt driven Pillar Drill

Hi all, I have picked up my new pillar drill today that I am going to put with my belt driven bench top grinder. I did drill some holes with it but couldn't video it as I had no spare hands, I will get a video when the engine is next out. Here is a short video.

Thanks

Hi, does anyone know anything about these drills like rough age ect? The only thing I can find on it was British Made. By the looks of it it was originally hand operated.

Thanks

Haven't a clue about age Matt, possibly 1940's/50's? I have a black hand operated UNION pillar drill similar to your one with auto feed somewhere in a shed/garage/who knows where (delete as neccessary!) that was my wifes grandfathers. I used it once as a press to compress some Ford Escort diesel valve springs, otherwise it hasn't been touched for 20+ years and is still in good condition. It is heavy though, I must have a look for it.

Pete.

Thank you Pete I will have a look at union ones, it's a nice thing. I got it to go with my old grinder and have just noticed up some old G clamps to go with it.

Thanks

Default Weight

How much does this kind of drill roughly weigh? I've won one on ebay, and I'm trying to arrange a courier
