pottyengineering Clamping Drill
« on: September 21, 2017, 09:30:51 AM »
Just completed this clamping drill.

You can clamp the complete unit to a large work piece the idea is that I can use it to drill the frame of the 5" loco i'm building giving me greater control of the drilling operation.

It just comprises of a windy drill/die grinder attached to a large toolmakers, it slides up and down the pillar via a lever mechanism.

Slick setup!  I've seen big magnetic-base ones sort of like it, but this is much more useful on small parts.

Not updated it for a while as I'm having problems with photobucket
