Ah, the elusive post drill. What I wouldn’t give to find one of these a bit closer to home.

I have a couple of those, never played with them. BUT I’ve watched them in use at a blacksmith shop and they go through steel like nothing. And they apply the down pressure. So a few cranks is all it takes.

JA, shipping would be a little high I guess.

I dearly want a post drill, but first have to have a place to put it. Found a working one last year locally for $75 and the same place had two that were complete for $40 ea, just needed worked over a little bit. If/when I build a new shop in the next couple years, a post drill will be in it.

LJ Mosquito has one that he uses.

My wife’s coworker apparently has one but he just plays with it. Doesn’t really use it to work or anything. And she said that he also told her about all the “box planes” that he has and plays with. Doesn’t do any woodworking or know how to use any of it, but still likes to buy them and clean them up anyway.

JT – if you see them for $40 BUY THEM. Keep one and sell the other for $80. Free post drill.

Oddly enough, I’m waiting for a post drill to come up for sale in my area so that I CAN substitute it in place of my motorized drill press.
