Hello,

After scouring through hundreds of old photos of vintage drill presses by manufacturer, I still cannot place this piece.

It is a bench top model with absolutely no badge-ing whatsoever to help. The only thing I can find is a stamp in the metal that says CF 22.

I’ll upload some pics this weekend, but if the CF 22 rings any bells, I’d love to hear it.

Thanks for the help.

Pics are a wonderful thing. Press the img button and take pic in landscape if using phone.

If it helps, things to note are:

1. Pilot feed lever has three arms

2. The table does not have a center hole, or an X pattern, but has 2 parallel holes in the form of long lines on either side

3. The chuck does not have a hash mark pattern, but instead has long, deep, vertical grooves.

If you haven’t yet, you might try posting pics on the OWWM.org forums.

Remove a screw and check if it is imperial or metric. That will narrow it down to country. If it is a BA or Whitworth thread, it is narrowed down even more. Does the chuck have a name on it? The motor doesn’t look original; looks like it came off a washing machine. That is a unique belt tension device.

I noticed that as well – pretty slick. I don’t believe I have ever seen a press that has that type of arrangement before.

The chuck isn’t named, but is made in Hardtford, CT.

It looks similar to budget models sold by
Sears and Wards. The rack and pinion
tensioner is odd though.

I’d guess it may be a department store
type brand. owwm.org is the place to
ask though.

That is a Jacobs 6A chuck. Doesn’t help much with identifying the press though, as that was a pretty standard chuck on many.

Cheers,

I have one like that in pieces in my garage. Mine’s manufactured by American Machine & Tool Co. You may want to follow that rabbit down the hole to see if you can figure out the exact model.

Ripper70,

I think that’s the right track! The handles on the feed lever are the same, and AM&T often have the flat on the face of the sleeve facing forward for a depth stop just like mine.

However, I cannot find one that matches mine. Lots’s of radials. Still, I think if you’re gonna have to map a rabbit hole, map the right one, not the whole, dang warren.

I also did a search in AM&T and several others and couldn’t come up with a match. The rack and pinion, belt tensioning feature would be a standout feature and that’s what I was looking for.

Have your say...
