Default Vintage machinery

In my quest to find a hand operated drill press I ran across this site. It is full of info - photos - and free PDFs fir all kinds of old machinery.
Maybe you can use it or at least just enjoy.

Thank you for listing this site. I am still using a 1917 16-inch lathe to this day. It comes through when some of the newer tools fall short.

you may be interested in "makeshift workshop skills" by James Ballou and "more makeshift workshop skills"

in one of those books he has instructions to build a hand opperated drill press, also several kinds of wood lathe's and other old time machinery that use manual power. the chapters leading up to them describe how the machine works and how to build it.

Thanks will look it up . I posted a 1898 makeshift skills book by Casals on the how to board a few weeks back. The site WKFinetools has a pretty extensive library available in PDF version.

I have a 16' converted into a 24" 1901, Lodge and Shipley lathe that I still use. Makes you stop and wonder, "did this lathe make weapons for WWI?"
