Hello All, I am helping a friend restore an old North Bros "Yankee" No. 1005 drill so far we have been very fortunate tearing the drill down and freeing up the seized screws and parts without damaging them, we have only found a few minor issues with the drill but I am hoping that someone here might be able to help. The drill is missing the automatic kickoff plate and if anyone has looked for one we all know its like pulling teeth to find one so I have come to you for help. I do not expect anyone to really have a spare sitting around on a shelf or in a drawer but there might be other ways you can help. I am able to get a new one cast( yes it wont be an original part) but the drill will be complete. I am looking for accurate measurements and possibly good clear photos/ diagrams

I have a Yankee No.1005. I'm about to go to work (Saturday morning here :cry: ) so can't measure anything until I get home - but a photo would help to make sure we're talking about the same thing.

Cheers, Vann.

Well I got home and was knackered - and completely forgot. But I remembered this morning.

Some of the tabs are at angles, so the measurements shown don't show the true dimensions.

I'm assuming you still have the stub of the original, so only have to re-create the top end. Let us know what additional info you need.

Cheers, Vann.

First Off Thank You, Vann We happened to get our hands on a 1003 that has the kick off plate and are now in the process of taking it along with your measurements and increasing the size proportionally. So hopefully soon ( within the next few weeks) we should have something that is similar to the original in design and is functional. Once we have that we will be looking at working on a cast version ( prototype will likely be aluminum or brass) the only way we will get it perfect is if we get our hands on either a mold/ cast of an original which we are hoping happens at some point but we are not counting on it. I was so intrigued by this drill that i happened to see one pop up for sale that is "functional" but missing a few key pieces, so i purchased my own to restore at the same time. I will get some pics up here as soon as i am able thanks again for your help Vince
