New Machine Mart Catalogue arrived yesterday so had flick through it.

So today bit the bullet and went and bought one of these along with a

vice to hold work pieces.

Some Assembly may be required








Not a bad drill will do all I need of it. I was bit miffed no fixings

supplied to hold vice in place on bed. So will have to make some up.

I have a very similar one, Silverline branded, useful piece of kit.  It's heavy, you need a sturdy bench to bolt it to, but the assembly is really easy.

It's bolted down already Dave.

The bench is well strong enough to carry the drill. It was built by me

when workshop was erected. First thing I did.

That is a robust looking bench, why has it had two different tops?

The wooden top was the covered with sheet metal wood splinters don't

mix with engine cases when dragged across them. Also hands

don't like splinters either.

No matter how much space you have you will fill it up.

You are most fortunate to have such a splendid workshop.

I'm sure you have lots of fun in there.

Looked in machine mart catalogue no bolts listed I could see.

all done now so vice won't shake all over the place.

Great stuff

I have some robust mahogany waiting for me to make such a bench with.    

Good basic drill, all the modern safety features.

I've got the same drill, branded Silverline - I've had it for about a year, gives me no trouble at all.
