Manual Drill Press

Postby lyle11 » Mon Aug 12, 2019 11:08 am

I have a hand crank drill press mounted in a shed. No idea where it came from. The only marking I see is PD20 in the casting. Mounted on a wall so manufacturer’s name might be hidden. Lighting is poor. It is in very good condition. Just some light surface rust on the movable vertical shaft.

I’m trying to determine a value if I decide to sell it. Asking if anybody has seen one of these before. If I have a manufacturer name, I could search and get a more accurate value. Might have to take it down and look it over better. Seems odd that it has no name in the casting. I don’t see anywhere a name plate was removed.

Photos are poor due to poor lighting and background.

Thanks

There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Thanks. This is located in Wisconsin and a lot of the old stuff I find is from more local manufacturers. Saw one on EBay from a place called BUFFALO FORGE that looks very similar but like many things the basic design was probably copied with minor variations. Guessing it might be worth $150-$200 based on EBay listings.

Might be closer to $100 to $150.

Lyle, are you in Wisconsin? Your zip code shows northeast Ohio about an hour from Bill Hudson.

I live in Hudson, OH but have an 80 acre farm in NW Wisconsin 54757 that I visit 5-6 times per year. Kind of like those rich people who spend summers in The Hampton’s.

If you have an Amish community near by, you should be able to get a decent price for it.

Lots of Amish around here but I don’t know any of them or how to advertise to them.

Place an ad in the local news paper and the free advertising flyers found in the grocery, auto parts, and gas stations.

I might just hang on to it. Since I’m only here for a week at a time, I don’t have a lot of time for print ads, etc. I’ve had good success selling using my wife’s Facebook Marketplace. If that doesn’t work I can resort to other methods. I just sold a manual well pump body today to a guy who fixes them for the Amish.

I'm amazed Barnyard nailed it so quickly. These are cool things when they aren't rusted up. See it has the power down feed and the pawl teeth look good. I have a couple of different make. The earlier had equally large flywheels without the belt groove. My dear grand dad had one mounted in the basement with a motor mounted at the floor joists.

The hand crank is obviously adjustable to pressure and speed. Some had a two speed reduction.

I have one that was my Grandfather's that he used in his garage. He wired a pulley to it so he could run it with an electric motor. I also have a couple coffee cans of bits for it. I plan to mount it in my shop as a "decoration".

Funny how the value fluctuates and likely has a real specific following. About 25 years ago I bought one for around $100, what was the going price then (or so I thought). A few years later I decided I didn't need two, so took it to an auction at a large tractor show in Nebraska. Barely got a $5 bid and the buyer left it there. Auctioneer told me to take it, so I did. Put it on another auction a few years later, same general area and it sold for around $100!
