Champion No. 108 Post Drill

The No. 108 is a small drill with grooved flywheel for use with a belt drive, if desired. Center to post is 3 3/4" (7 1/2" dia circle). 6" diameter flywheel, 1/2" chuck, 26" backboard. Non-adjustable self feed.

The drill runs smoothly, however, the self feed skips due to wear of some of the teeth on the hand wheel. Hand filing to reface the teeth would cure this. Also, the flywheel shaft is slightly bent, causing the pulley to not run true. This doesn't affect the shaft bearings or balance, since the bend is right at the flywheel. It was likely dropped at some time. Good working condition.
