    Evening alo.
    Another thread...this time on my progress no2 drill. Thought it was about time I made a start.. this will be a full strip down and rebuild. Paint wise. Same as my empire lathe...its covered in crud but otherwise complete. Only got a few bits off today. The quill appears to be ok. I will replace all bearings. I will share more details as I progress on the progress. 20190704_170640.jpg 20190704_181332.jpg

    I do enjoy a challenge. The pulley was a bit of an ass to remove.

    I did. It was a little persistent to start with.

    Are they cast iron or alloy pulleys?

    I'll be watching this thread, the spindle on my progress locked up for some reason. I have enough on my plate at the moment without getting stuck into another project, but i will tackle it later on in the year.

    Finest quality :laughing:

    Hornby model trains have had a bad run of that stuff, when it rots it expands, with enough force to destroy the plastic body shells. The Class 31s are the worst affected.

    Yes. I learned that lesson a few years ago.

    Metal corroding produces an incredible amount of force, I'm not surprised it breaks plastic!

    After a totally crud day doing Jabberwocky for others.(sick to death of ) 20190705_151922.jpg 20190705_151940.jpg I had a relaxing afternoon taking the quill apart. It's in good condition. The bearings ain't worth a rub. So I will be replacing these.

    I reckon mine was aluminium, still needed to heat it though.

    Measure the ones you've got rather than going by the manual.

    I will take both sets in to my local bearings supply. They have been good in sorting out my bearings.

    You've inspired me to sort mine out now, won't go to the same extent you are (I don't do paint :laughing:) but I'll get it back to working like it should.

    I'll start a thread tomorrow if it looks like I'm getting somewhere. :D
