Vtg. Millers Fall Barn Beam Drill Auger Boring Machine/look & Works Great/3-bits:
You are offerding on this early vintage Miller's Falls Barn Beam drill. It is in great working condition and looks very good also. The wooden bottom is in great condition, but the fellow tacked an extra slat on the inside for some project He was working on. I didn't want to bother with it, but you could take it off to get to original. (Just lite finishing nails). The only thing I do see , the thumb hex screw that tightens the bits in the chuck, are bent a little, but still works great(see photo). All the gear teeth are great , and the dog that splits the gears so it will raise the bit out of the timber or just drill, work very well. It does have the depth stop, so you can set how deep you need to drill. This was caked with dust and dried griese on the gears, so I took the air hose and blew off what would blow off. Then I sprayed liquid Wrench on it before I started doing any turning at all. I was really afraid the hinges on the feet would give Me some troubles because there are 4, but after I let it set overnite, I tried moving it, and it was really pretty easy to loosen up. It really does work like a champ. All three drill bits do need to be cleaned and sharpen. The egg shape nobs are really good. The blue strawberry box it is sitting on , is not part of the drill. I will be taking theback 2 braces off to ship, they stick out a good bit past the machine when folded down, and I know for sure that they might be damaged in shipping, if I ship them still intact.Just plain ole screws do hold them on, so will be very simple to fasten them back on. I would be more than happy to have you pick this up, if you are close to Central Ohio. I know it wouldn't get busted upthen. Very heavy item to reflect the shipping cost. It will have insurance on it, if I ship. sale. Be more than happy to answer any questions. Thanks for looking. Note: I do have this advertised locally in the farm paper for $500. I will not sell it locally for less than that until this sale has ended. BUT if I do have a winning buyer in this listing at any price, The winning buyer will be the new owner over local paper offers.
