7” ?
 


The wife says that’s not a lot of room but I explained it’s engineering 7” which is slightly different than biological 7” and when I showed her on the ruler she asked where I get my biological measurements from as they’re about 3” short :ph34r:

Now *that* is a drill!

Stephen, so glad you joined this forum!

Thank you much appreciated, when looking to join a Landrover forum I chose this one ( and there is a few out there ) because it came across as welcoming and professional it is the only one I'm in and I don't regret a minute of it regards Stephen

Right, a big drill needs a big vice, I got two when I bought the drill both in a general state of knackeredness.

One I have scrapped as beyond sensible redemption the other I've repaired

Stripped down 

20210304_103913.thumb.jpg.16897afcb9318a6f858c900612075fda.jpg

You can see the state of the base no intact slots left for fastening down, guess that's the trouble with cast iron

20210304_110805.thumb.jpg.30a6b044b058445cfe583216659e5679.jpg

Excess trimmed off

20210304_111804.thumb.jpg.6fa1ba4cff7a27912312870260ca1234.jpg

Put in the lathe and machined down, had to under cut slightly to get rid of broken section damage

20210304_125048.thumb.jpg.490a07bb4b53a473085e2f2f812e6593.jpg

Next cut some 12mm plate and drilled and countersunk

20210304_110751.thumb.jpg.ccb7cee6e7c30dd8febf2ca09f0334df.jpg

Fixed to base, base swivels so that's a bonus, also cut slots in to match slots in drill bed

20210304_131428.thumb.jpg.37343a9b3a705878555d1e846e1aabde.jpg

Put together

Vice does not look out of place on drill regards Stephen

Looks great, and shows what can be resurrected with a bit of care and time rather than just slung in the scrap bin.

Yep, spot on the cost of buying a new one is astronomical so way better to restore if possible regards Stephen

A bit more tinkering with drill, it only goes to Morse 3 taper so looking to get to mt4  was not happy with welded on arrangement at chuck so have cut it off to allow me to square it up and also to see which way bearing comes off

20210308_185628.thumb.jpg.8d02c58cb991cd241bb029ad91be1859.jpg

20210308_190001.thumb.jpg.21d383b3efa9c2fe658692ca49f03794.jpg

20210308_190005.thumb.jpg.f9cfa59e48fcb378c988b70c253d375d.jpg

So bearing comes off away from the chuck which makes life a tad easier as I have a parallel adaptor with a mt4 hole in it

20210308_191442.thumb.jpg.d3266e0614ef722fab92a262f9ec18dd.jpg

20210308_191459.thumb.jpg.9fdcbe429b96d29f37c1d0a5dc3414d0.jpg

So I'm planning on cutting drill shaft down and making a sleeve on the lathe to press onto drill shaft and then press mt4 parallel adaptor into sleeve and weld up so when finished drill will be able to take mt4 drill bits of which I have an abundance hope that makes sense regards Stephen
