  • brierley zb-25 manual

    Does anyone have a copy of the manual for this machine? I've found a manual online which is incomplete, but a good starting point. I'd really like to acquire a better copy!

    It took several seconds to find a manual by seraching google for "brierley drill grinder user manual"

    Found a PDF at https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...o7W1AXtnqWFJDD
    At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

      Thank you. That would be the incomplete version that I mentioned.

        I suppose an email or a call to Brierley is out of the question?: http://brierleymachines.com/#

            From what I've read, it would appear that Brierley is no more,similar to Dean,Smith and Grace. Not entirely clear on who now manufactures and who distributes, however a possibility none the less. Seemed a little more circuitous than posing a question here first.

            Saw the various pay option websites, including E-Bay,Tony's site etc. Again, a possibility. I'm nothing if not frugal. I am parsimonious to a fault.
            I also enjoy alcohol. This combination leads me to search for "pro bono" love....

              How does the model 25 differ from the 32? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWfPKL0sEvc
              If you look over at PM, seem like this same question was posted years ago and remains unanswered.

                I believe that the model number refers to maximum chuck opening in millimeters. Otherwise the same. I will post "over there" and see if I get a bite.
                I'm also a bit surprised by the sparse interweb information, given the volume of units sold over the decades.

                  Just a guess, but that's a machine normally sold to businesses years ago. Professional machinists were not like to have the time to post about how to use a tool.

                  On top of that, the manual that you seek is copyrighted. That means that a copy of the manual posted in the heyday of the 1990s copyright wars would have been deleted.

                    Its a grinder made in the UK, how many could they have made and sold compared to production numbers for Rush, Cincinnati, Gorton, KO Lee, DoAll, G&L, Oliver, Covel, Black Diamond, Darex, etc., etc.? Even fewer would have been exported beyond the UK borders.
