Hello 

Please, I’m looking for any information on this Post Drill Press made in Buffalo NY. Year would be fantastic.

Also if you can tell me how to remove the spindle would be great? 

Restoring has commenced. 😀imageproxy.php?img=&key=3c03e03cfca50bb9

Some information may be found here.

Without seeing more of the machine in the photos I could not make a photo ID in the listings.

There are also some publication reprints available that may help.

Many thanks Larry. 

I can post more photos. No problem.

When I was reading, it says Buffalo didn’t stamp any serial numbers, interesting that this one has 784 stamped.

I think I have one exactly like that. It also takes a square shank bit which I don't have any of...I think this one was called a portable model. 

ThankYou Smallpatch.

I would love to your press, to compare

Makes sense, being a portable one, with no motor, I guess farmers could take it out to the field.

That is cleaning up very nicely Tas, what are you using to do this?

G’day Cal

ThankYou,

elbow grease 😀

I have several different types of wire brushes for my angle grinder. 

And I also use a Dremel with wire brushes for the tight areas.

I try not to use chemicals, I reckon they ruin the nickel or chromium or whatever metals. 

Unfortunately the WD40 has made a horrid mess.

This one says 1890. WAR #4 might be the brand and model. Looks like the original handle,ha.IMG_1077.thumb.JPG.17eabba75035d9f79d119224f343043f.JPG

 And the wall mounted model if I didn't use it for a boat anchor its here somewhere..

Just an update. 

Still not completed yet, due to in excess work other side projects and tendinitis 😉 

advice please. I’ve just about finished the drill press, however I’m not sure if I want to bolt it back on, can we have a vote on it? I will still restore the post though. 

Have a great night.
