Hello to everyone,
I need advise on restoring my new Millers Falls No. 1 Hand Drill. I have successfully disassemble most of the drill, But I am having trouble on two things:
1. I need advise on the handle and ferrule. The Ferrule is seated firmly on the wooden handle, I tried to loosen it by hand and grabbing it in my vise with a piece of leather without any luck.
Should I exert additional force to loosen the ferrule? Is the ferrule sturdy enough as not to get deformed?
2. in the spindle housing I found four ball bearings and the spindle seats on these four bearrings, there is not a plate between these four bearings and the spindle. Is this correct? I haven’t found any diagram or a disassembled drill.
3. Under this four bearings, it looks that there is a trust plate and it spins, like if there actually more bearings under that plate. Has someone disassembled the spindle housing and describe its assembly? please see photo below
4. What oil or grease do you recommend for lubrication? I have 3 in 1 SAE 20 Motor oil, that I think would be perfect for this application. What do you think?
Thanks for you help
