Hello from Derbyshire

Hello from Derbyshire

Hello and thanks for letting me join.  I've recently picked up a Kerry's 8-Speed Super Drill, but it's pretty tatty to say the least.  I think the basic mechanicals are fine, so I will clean and repaint, without stripping out the back-gear or spindle.  There are some broken links that hold the cover in place though, and I can't quite work out what the linkage should look like.  I would appreciate some photos from a similar machine please.
I'm not sure if I should post any pics in this introductory post or start a new post elsewhere.
All help appreciated!
Regards, Tim

Re: Hello from Derbyshire

Hello Tim,
A very practical drill for its weight, I found mine very useful and fitted it up with a square table, which I counterbalanced with a line, pulley and a weight down the back. I occasionally drilled up to a 1" hole by opening it up in steps and only parted with it when a cheap Fobco 7/8" came along.
From memory I think that they are straight links with a hole at each end so that you push the cover up and back and it just stands up on the links, it was one of the slightly precarious things about the design. I think that on mine the links were made out of a stack of thin strips, but that may be an aberration. You could experiment with wood I suppose.
I will be seeing the friend that I sold it to Saturday week if you have not obtained a photo before then..
Regards, Peter.

Re: Hello from Derbyshire

Thanks Peter for the reply.  Your recollection of thin strip links seems to be present on mine, see pic, but I can't quite visualise the brackets on the cover.  I could mackle something up but it would be nice to see what it should look like!
All the best, Tim
( sorry the attachment option wouldn't work for me...)

Re: Hello from Derbyshire

It might be that your guard is missing the little iron right angle brackets that are screwed onto the top and project down into the slot in the top to provide pivot points for the links?   This web page link does  not really show you anything but at least you can see the guard in the raised position and the end of the back link. In the mean time I will email my friend with the K.S8. … er-8.60442

Kind regards,
