Jim, What a dummy I am!!! Disassembled and cleaned the lowering/drilling mechanism this morning. Found that there was a small set screw in the outer shaft that was too tight. A little more cleaning and adjustment of this set screw, and she spins real nice now. Done drilled me a coupla holes to try ‘er out. Been wanting a nice hand cranked drill press for many years. I am very fortunate to have been able to acquire this one. Great little device.

Looked at the link you shared. Classes look good. Based on this last experience, maybe I should sign up for a ‘Remedial Woodworking” class…… 8^)
