    Default finished my camelback!

    Here's the summary writeup of my Canedy Otto no. 36 drill press restoration. (I have posted parts of it here and don't want to repeat posting those.) It's just pictures and text, no videos or fancy graphics or intro pieces and I'm not selling tee shirts.

    Looks very good, I would hate to be the first to drill a little peck hole in the table....ground for the firing squad....Reminds me the the first job I had at Dads machine shop, drilling 1200 3/4 inch holes for a drag chain in a drill like yours...Phil

    Very nice drill press... I repainted my 21" Buffalo press many years ago and added a 4 speed tranny out of a Dodge Army truck.. Three phase motor so instant reversing capability which is good for tapping.... It would really be nice if they stayed clean and nicely painted but they won't... Cheers; Ramsay 1

    I keep hearing about people using old manual transmissions in unusual ways. Would you be willing to post a picture or two of your setup?

    Can you start a new thread and show more pictures of the cart shown in the first picture?

    Off topic: Grant's (metalmagpie) Uni-Grinder builds are fantastic, they put to shame all the 2" x 72" grinders the knifemakers are so fond of as well as the various offerings from Bader and so forth!

    Grant: Have you ever considered creating a YouTube channel with the material from your website?

    Yes, thank you. I decided not to, mainly because I don't want to get into video editing or buying and storing a bunch of video equipment. My talents run more towards the written word and that is what I will stick with.

    I am happy to provide clarification should you want it.
