Peter, you're in the Empire, I was hoping you could tell me.
Do you see many Drummond lathes in New Zealand?
In 1970, i came across one of these little Drummond radials in a local brassfounders &finishers, From memory i seem to remember it was the model up from the gut belt example as shown in the illustrations,having a drive up through the column, Still had fast &loose pulleys It was a neat little machine, sadly the owner of the factory, was not an approachable sort of person, Later on he scrapped the column &drive &used the box table &stand as a work holding station
Even then i would have liked that little machine, I have never seen one of them or even heard of one since, I wonder if they were just too light to be a marketable commodity & maybe Drummond gave up on them early on?
RADIAL ARM DRILL SINGLE PHASE WORKING IDEAL MODEL MAKERS
There was a Drummond radial drill very like this on EBay UK. The seller has removed it due to some damage but informs me that he plans to put it back on when that's sorted out. You can find it by searching Completed Listings under the above description. I didn't post a link while it was active, as so many people object. The seller also informed me that the drill wasn't treadle-powered, though it otherwise looks very similar to the drill described above. It looks very nice to me, however it was powered.
