I just picked up a really nice Canedy-Otto Model 36 (20" ) drill press. It has the power feed gearing and five speed cone belt pully set up, with low speed backgear. Also two drive cones on the bottom shaft for the original belt driven countershaft. Everything appears to be in really good shape and operable.
However the drive motor and original countershaft are missing. So I haven't seen it in operation yet.
The lower shaft has a v belt pully attached, so I guess the machine was driven off a now absent electric motor.
So, can anyone tell me the proper size modern motor would be to drive this model DP? I have a really nice older 1 hp 110/220 I could use, if it is the right size.
Also, more importantly, does anyone know what speed I step down the electric motor shaft output RPM to operate the DP within its designed speed range.
And what are the factory speeds normally encountered with the five step cone pully and back gears???
Oh yeh, I guess I don't know a thing about what the two drive belt pulleys do that are mounted on the bottom shaft at the rear of the DP. I read somewhere one is a tension pully, the other a slack pully? What does that mean exactly??
Thanks very much for any assistance you might be able to offer.
1) side view - stands 67" tall, fits perfectly laying down in the bed of my Ford Ranger
2) power down feed gearing
3) back gear for slooow drill speeds - slowest is around 36 rpm apparently
4) acme feed shaft to raise and lower table.
