Working out in the garage, trying to get rid of an old Craftsman table saw and uh, some other items.
As soon as I can get a hold of the guy and get that out of the back of my rig then I need to stop and grab a can of spray paint for the old post drill and then see about using the little lathe to shave down the boss on one of the gears to swap from one to the other.
Amazingly enough, even though both of these post drills were made by the same company and at first glance look identical, apparently one is newer than the other and there were some parts upgrades.
That means there are slight differences in how the feed mechanism is connected to the main drill shaft.
The one I want to fix had a tooth broke off a bevel gear, the other one fits but it makes the gear mesh way the hell off.
A little end facing to shorten that boss and I should be good to go.
We shall see, the gear does actually fit in my little lathe.
