  • I finally got got one

    Ever since I read "The Bedside Readers" I have wanted a "Cole Drill". While this is only a copy it satisfies my obsession. Can't wait to try it.

        I can't vouch for the Little Giant version but the real Cole Drills come in handy. I used mine to drill the 3/4" holes in the frame of my "Kenbota". I couldn't get enough force with my 1/2" power drill and moving a 350lb. frame to the drill press was out of the question.

        The Cole drill will punch through 3/8" plate in less than a minute, if you have the arm(s) for it.

              Not much smaller than the "converted table top drill press" I cut the post, welded a plate to it.

              You clamp the plate to the item *(ibeam?) and drill away.. It works great and not magnetic like I wanted but works..

                        Both links worked fine for me also.

                        Glad you posted that GA. I would have sneered and walked by one at a flea market. Now I'll be heading for the ATM instead!

                        Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

                        It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

                          Links worked fine here also. I had seen the Cole drill article in the MBR and wondered if they really worked. Thanks to G.A. I know they do!

                              I'm wondering, how hard it would be to make one. What does it have for bearings? what size is the spindle? What is the thread pitch?

                              Or are they still available new for a reasonable cost.
