1972 Challenge Century Single-Head Paper Drill

1972 Challenge Century Single-Head Paper Drill

This Challenge Century Single-Head Paper Drill is equipped with a 1/4 H.P. motor on the spindle and a 1/2 H.P. motor on the hydraulic unit. Individual motor controls are provided. To operate, simply raise the spindle to its highest point and insert a hollow drill (not included) into the spindle. Depressing the foot treadle brings the drill down through the lift of stock. After the drill reaches the bottom of its stroke, release the treadle and the drill will return to its top position. After each hole is drilled, the side guide is tripped automatically and the stock is then moved into position for the next hole to be drilled.
