Hi guys
Just bought a Fobco Star pillar drill off marketplace for £20 I can't believe the weight of it. I have watched a YouTube video on how you change the speed on them , the motor is already forward as it can go, and I am struggling to get the belt off to change speeds. For you all to know I have never owned a pillar drill before and in need of help. Thank you all..... steve

Great bargain, well done! Likely a longer belt needed. I can measure mine later and see what length it is. Remind me this evening if you don't see a post on this.

914mm internal belt length leaves about 15mm when the belt is tight.
