Was: Project:Tauco Bench Drill (Now Deleted)
Restoration project. Dclarke (talk)
Stalled - needs a cast gear making. Parts no longer in the Hackspace.
The more recent arrival of the Fobco bench drill is a replacement for this one.
This is a Tauco (USA) bench drill seen about to be scrapped by AndyC, who brought it along to see if we could use it. It has the following basic features:
3-phase 3/4HP motor and speed change via belt drive.Chuck to pillar clearance of 180mmChuck to worktable 270mmChuck to base 410mm
Serial number 15-8152 415V, 50c/s, 0.8A, 0.75HP 1420RPM motor by Tuscan Engineering, London N1
Considerable cosmetic rusting needs to be cleaned up, a re-paint is needed and a couple of items are missing - a quill-end stepped pulley, and up-to-date electrical controls.
It also needs a safety cover for the belt drive fabricating - when first built it didn't have one - nonetheless it is a substantial industrial tool that I'm sure we can make good use of at the Hackspace.
I don't know how old it is - possibly 40 years or more.
