Decided to have a workshop clear out to make space. This drill only gets used every now and then so think I'll let it go.

I rebuilt it a few years ago including changing all the bearings, stripped it down completely and had the main body powder coated. Had the motor checked over, built the mobile base on lockable heavy duty casters. Made the table with adjustable fence and removable inserts. Fitted a new drive belt, new lead and plug and it has an NVR switch.
They're going as wrecks on eBay for £300 so the price below seems reasonable

For sale for £400 for everything

Collection only obviously from Shepperton Middlesex.

If there's any way of getting this to Lancashire then I'd be interested, only reason I've passed on this is the distance.

I think it would cost too much to courier it at a guess. It's very heavy

Never did get around to selling this. Open to sensible offers to get it out of my way.

Can you tell me the height of the drill, and the height of the top of the cabinet. And what is the spindle travel? Does it have a depth stop or depth indicator fitted?

Thanks.

Hi Lee I'm suffering with a slipped disc at the moment so can't get to the workshop. I'm 6ft though and I'd say the top of the drill is my eye level and the base I made must be around belt height. You'd have to look online for the throat height. When I got the drill it didn't have a depth gauge and I was going to make one but never got around to it. I've personally never needed one.

Hi Brian sending pm now
Hi Chippy,

I did receive the PM this afternoon but as Marcos notes until I have posted a few more times I am unable to use the messaging system, even to respond... I am very interested and happy to put a deposit down via bank transfer once we can exchange msgs, so hang fast while I post a few responses tonight on the boards to enable the message system on my profile.

I would share my email detail but I don't like to do that on an open forum that can be scrapped by spammers...

Thanks
Brian
