I found this in an old barn last month. Did not do much cleaning to it. Oiled up the chuck and all detectable moving parts I could oil. I probably used the wrong oil, WD40 was close by. I found a 1 HP Electric motor with the 4 speed gearing already on it in the same barn. Hooked the 2 together, fired it up, drilled a hole in a 2x4 and it is sitting there. I lube the bearing on the old Western Electric motor with 90 Weight. That is probably wrong also but, needed to put something there!! It is wired for 110 but can be converted to 220 easily. All tags are still on machine I think. I have the model number and serial number. I would like to get an appraisal or sell it if anyone could help!! There are also 2 additional tool attachments I don't know what they are used for. I will go take some pictures and send them all up.It only allows one picture. If you want to see additional feel free to e-mail me about it.

I would love some information on this tool! At least where I could post the info I have to get information! I would like to know Appx Mfg date and value. If anyone knows anything please let me know! Thanks, TJ

I need to add additional pics. Partly to identify additional parts that came with machine. Does anyone have a clue what year it was built or is there a mark on the machine somewhere to see that. If anyone wants to buy it, it runs great, seems centered. I drilled a 1/2: hole in a 2 x 4 with it and it was fine. Turned it off after that and came to this site!
