I’ve been looking to equip my shop with “hand powered” tools. So when I saw this, It was love at first sight. I had it shipped home, and sadly, It arrived with the frame broken in two. After filling a claim with the shipping company, I was not happy with their offer to refund my money “on further inspection” (meaning give it to them and await payment)—-no thank you. I will now have it “welded” by a local machine shop. 1) As it arived. A beaut...
I have put work into this sparingly. I sanded as little as possible, 2 coats of black spray paint, and a little oil for the moving parts. Now to find an efficient way to mount.
I finally have it mounted, and have tested it. Im gonna atempt posting a couple videos of it in action.By the way… Im an idiot. The lever in the video engages the bit into the wood not disengages. It is slower…but it is designed to be sort of an automatic feed…yep…i know…... I blame it on the excitement. here And here
