Now i finished to restore the pillar drill,only 1 thing left, i have to buy a new chuck for it, cause its not in the best condition, and it hasn't got its key...but the drill work fine...and i may buy a vice for it as well,cause sometimes its easier to hold the items with it.....
I wanted to buy a pillar drill for my garage....i found one on a farm...the owner of the farm is a very good man,and i've got it from him...the state of the drill not the best,but i'll restore it....
This is how i've got it:
Lets take it to pieces and start to restore it:
Looks a bit better:
I haven't done it yet,so continue soon...
I was looking for a sheet metal shear for my garage....i could buy a new one ,but i prefer the old style, in my opinion they are better,and i can have some fun to reconditioning them...i found one, and a few days later another one,and i decided to keep both...
This is how they looked when i bought them...you can see them in the background...the black stand on the pic is what i made for them to fit on...
let see how they look now:
this is the bigger one with 200mm blades
this is the smaller one with 160mm blades
and fitted on the stand:
the stand fitted with 2 castors (with brakes),so i can move it easily around the garage...
Back again...i had a text from the owner a few days ago...he asked me:"could you fit a sound system in the car for me?" i said:yes of course!...so he brought it back to me for a bit...he bought a really good head unit and a pair of really good speakers....lets do it!
first: i made a bracket for the head unit,which will be under the dash....there is no room anywhere else for it....
the speakers will be in the boot...lets cut a hole for them...
i fitted the wiring for the system and put it back together...
works well,give it back to the owner,and he can enjoy it...job done
