It is used to remove chucks or something from a column drill, the chap who bought the drill can´t find one amongst the tooling he has.
This one is for the lathe.

Commonly called a drift for a morse tapered shank for lathe or pillar drill, it's just a shaped wedge easily made

Thanks Kev.

I just had a look for one, on Amazon anything from 59€ upwards. It´s only a bit of metal.

I don´t think Gordon has the knowhow to make one.

It might be that Hans used the same one for both jobs, just tell him you can't find it.

No, he would have had one or more for each machine, he collected tools like some people collect antiques [biggrin].
Unfortunately I was too hasty getting rid of stuff to start with and didn´t keep my eyes on what people were taking, Gordons father took too many drill bits for instance and when I have time have to go down and try to sort them out.   

He´ll have to buy himself one.

hi gerty


most pillar drills do not come with them

 they  are nothing special and something anyone with a bit of flat bar and a hacksaw can easily make

as the angle is not very important

I´ll tell him that.  I think the drill may have had a different shaped tool, a kind of hook.  It´s a long time since I worked with him, years ago I would have known where to find everything and what it was for, but since we moved here I have had very little to do with the workshop only went in when he was working if I wanted him to fix something or to give him a cuddle.

That is extremely kind John, if Gordon can't get one from anywhere other than buying a new one I'll take you up on the offer.
