Not long after I bought my Fobco Star I uploaded some pics in a thread about drills on here (not the restoration thread) and I discovered there was both a larger 5/eight and 7/eight model, the latter of which could take 3mt in the spindle which I thought would be pretty neat to own as my Bantam lathe takes 3mt in the tailstock, and the tooling could thus be shared. @MattF and @spencer 427 commented on that original post saying about the joys of owning a beautiful camelback drill, which I believe planted the seed for this next endeavour! Whichever I could find first, a nice camelback of a Fobco 7/eight, I’d try and get it. I’ve kept looking for ages and seen a few things come and go - a few pedestal drills of my 1/2 capacity, but seldom few 3mt drills. Well, stop press! The other week I spotted this beauty, and somehow I’ve convinced myself that it would be a good idea to go and collect it.
